Shocking: Irrfan Khan suffers from a rare disease


Versatile actor Irrfan Khan tweeted that he is suffering from a rare disease and investigation is underway to reach to a conclusion. The actor was not keeping well for quite sometime and some days ago, it was said that he is down with jaundice and for that his next outing with Deepika Padukone has been postponed.

Taking to Twitter, the ‘Hindi Medium’ actor wrote, “Sometimes you wake up with a jolt with life shaking you up. The last fifteen days, my life has been a suspense story. Little had I known that my search for rare stories would make me find a rare disease. I have never given up and have always fought for my choices and always will. My family and friends are with me and we are working it out the best way possible. In trying times, please don’t speculate as I will myself share with you my story within a week – ten days, when the further investigations come with a conclusive diagnosis. Till then, wish the best for me.”

Earlier this month, filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj had announced on Twitter that he is postponing the film with Deepika and Irrfan because the ‘Piku’ stars are not in the best of their health.  Mr Bhardwaj wrote in his tweet: "Pushing back film by a few months, Irrfan Khan down with jaundice and Deepika Padukone with resurfaced back issue caused during ‘Padmaavat’.  While prepping, was transported to Maqbool days. Stunning look tests; can't wait to start shoot. Sending pyaar & duaaen to my Ustara and Afshan."

Here’s wishing Irrfan Khan a speedy recovery!
