 The actor who was undergoing treatment for neuroendocrine tumour in London for past one year have announced about his cancer diagnosis on social media.

“Maybe somewhere in the pursuit of winning, we forget how much it means to be loved. In our vulnerability, we are reminded. As I leave my footprints onto these steps of my life, I want to pause to be grateful for receiving your immense love and support, it soothed me in my process of healing. So I travel back to you, thanking you from the bottom of my heart,” he wrote.

Learning that I have been diagnosed with NeuroEndocrine Tumour as of 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.”

On work front, Irrfan is expected to begin work on Hindi Medium 2. Kareena Kapoor Khan will be seen for the sequel of hit film that exposes the education system of our country. The original Hindi Medium (2017) was directed by Saket Choudhary with Pakistani actor Saba Qamar in the lead role opposite Irrfan.
