Last week, Bollywood versatile actor Irrfan Khan took to social media and shared about suffering from a ‘rare disease’. The actor revealed that he is suffering from a rare disease, which left his fans worried and speculate about it. Later, he revealed that he has been diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumour and that he will be treated for it abroad.
He tweeted, “Life is under no obligation to give us what we expect: Margaret Mitchell. The unexpected makes us grow, which is what the past few days have been about. Learning that I have been diagnosed with NeuroEndocrine Tumour as of now has now has admittedly been difficult, but the love and strength of those around me and that I found within me has brought me to a place of hope. The journey of this is taking me out of the country, and I request everyone to continue sending their wishes. As for the rumours that were floated NEURO is not always about the brain and googling is the easiest way to do research 🙂 To those who waited for my words, I hope to be back with more stories to tell.”
Here is Irrfan Khan’s statement:

The ‘Piku’ actor took to Instagram and shared a picture of his shadow along with a poem by Rainer Maria Rilke. Irrfan is currently in London, UK, undergoing treatment but before, he made sure to share his state of mind with an emotional post.
Here’s what Irrfan posted on Tuesday:
God speaks to each of us as he makes us, then walks with us silently out of the night. These are the words we dimly hear: You, sent out beyond your recall, go to the limits of your longing. Embody me. Flare up like a flame and make big shadows I can move in. Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final. Don’t let yourself lose me. Nearby is the country they call life. You will know it by its seriousness. Give me your hand #rainermariarilke
On the work front, Irrfan Khan’s upcoming film ‘Blackmail’ is scheduled to release on April 4. However, the actor doesn’t want to postpone the release of the film. Director Abhinay Deo told news agency IANS, “When I met him, he was very curious to know about the trailer, songs and the dialogue promos that we would be making. His only request was that the film should get the best possible release and it should not suffer because of his absence,”
