Irrfan Khan shocked all his fans when he revealed recently that he is suffering from a rare disease. He opened up about it in a post on social media. He revealed that he is suffering from Neuroendocrine tumor. Irrfan is currently undergoing treatment in London.
His upcoming film Blackmail will be releasing on April 6, 2018. Director Abhinay Deo spoke to a leading daily about Irrfan and said, “What he’s doing is absolutely inspirational and amazing. He not only opened up in detail about what he’s going through at this point of time, but also [talked about] how he’s dealing with his illness. This clearly highlights his positivity and strength. And in my opinion, it’s a winner’s attitude, something that we should learn from him.”
“Irrfan is showing us how to deal with such [unavoidable] circumstances in life. I’m happy that he’s doing well and, hopefully, will be back with us as early as possible,” he added.
When asked about how Irrfan’s absence at promotions will affect the film at the box-office, Abhinay said, “Honestly, good work is always a team effort. When everyone makes something with their heart and soul, a good piece of work comes out of it. And it also strikes the right chord with the audience. We’re keeping no stone unturned to promote the film; even Irrfan wanted it this way. He wants the best for the film and has extended his support.”
