Irrfan Khan Describes His Battle with Cancer

Irrfan-Khan-Describes-His-Battle-with-Cancer

Irrfan Khan has kept away from the media glare ever since he shared he was suffering from a rare disease back in March. Despite disclosing very little detail on his battle earlier on, Irrfan has now come out to share more on his illness and turmoil with an exclusive interview with TOI.
 

Speaking to Anshul from TOI, “It’s been quite sometime now since I have been diagnosed with a high-grade neuroendocrine cancer. This new name in my vocabulary, I got to know, was rare, and due to fewer study cases, and less information comparatively, the unpredictability of the treatment was more. I was part of a trial-and-error game,” said Irrfan.

He continued, “In this chaos, shocked, afraid and in panic, while on one of the terrifying hospital visits, I blabbered to my son, ‘The only thing I expect from ME is not to face this crisis in this present state. I desperately need my feet. Fear and panic should not overrule me and make me miserable.’ That was my INTENTION. AND THEN PAIN HIT.”

“As I was entering the hospital, drained, exhausted, listless, I hardly realised my hospital was on the opposite side of Lord’s, the stadium. The Mecca of my childhood dream. Amidst the pain, I saw a poster of a smiling Vivian Richards. Nothing happened, as if that world didn’t ever belong to me. I was left with this immense effect of the enormous power and intelligence of the cosmos. The peculiarity of MY hospital’s location – it HIT me. The only thing certain was the uncertainty. All I could do was to realize my strength and play my game better,” Irrfan said.
Many Bollywood celebrities have been writing supportive messages for Irrfan and have been wishing him well. 
 



Let’s all wish Irrfan a speedy recovery because the world is a better place with talented actors like him!
Watch Irrfan Khan working his usual magic onscreen alongside Saba Qamar in Hindi Medium, premiering on 28th June at 9 PM on BollyOne HD (Ch251).
