Indian actor Irrfan Khan has contracted a rare disease

Renowned Indian actor Irrfan Khan has tweeted that he is suffering from a rare disease and is undergoing further tests to reach a conclusive diagnosis. He had earlier taken a break from work and it was reported that he had been diagnosed with jaundice.

In his tweet, 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.”

A Vishal Bhardwaj film was postponed after its lead actors – Deepika Padukone and Irrfan were reported to be under the weather. While Irrfan was said to have jaundice, Deepika reportedly had back pain.

“Please do bear with us during this time as we request everyone verify any facts and information. We would truly appreciate, that if clarifications are needed, they are routed through us. At this point of time, this is all the information we have, and we promise to keep an update as we have clarity,” Irrfan’s spokesperson told the Indian media.

“The doctors have strictly advised complete bed rest for Irrfan. His team is working on rescheduling all his commitments in the best interest of all causing as minimal as issues to everyone,” his publicist added.

We wish the actor health and a speedy recovery.
