Irrfan Khan undergoes treatment, requests everyone to wish for him
New Delhi : It is known to all, that the popular Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan has been diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Tumour. For past few days he is going through psychological tension and physical illness. On Tuesday evening, the actor has shared some of heart-touching words on his Instagram account. The thoughtful post by the PIKU film actor has mentioned his present state of mind. His posts highlight his strong faith in the almighty while he is undergoing a flight against the rare disease.
In his Instagram account, Irrfan shared a Rainer Maria Rilke poem, “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.”
In his previous tweet, Irrfan also talked about his leaving the country for treatment. Since then, his fan following including media has been guessing about his illness and the place where he will undergo his treatment. However, the loving actor put an end to all the rumours about his health as 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 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.”
Seeing the speculation all around, the actor’s wife Sutapa Sikdar also took to Facebook to appeal people to not speculate about her husband’s health and called him a ‘warrior’. Bollywood Filmmaker, who has signed the actor for his next, also tweeted and said that he won’t start working for his movie unless Irrfan is back after his treatment.
Vishal Bhardwaj wrote, “Irrfan is a warrior and we know he will conquer this battle. Therefore @deepikapadukone, Prernaa @kriarj and I have decided to reschedule our film and start with renewed energy and celebration when our warrior returns as a winner.”
Abhinay Deo, the director of Irrfan’s upcoming release Blackmail, made a statement to PTI, “I met him and he is fine and in good spirits. We all know that he is unwell. He is away for his treatment. We should respect the privacy of the family. We are hoping that he will be with us on April 6, watching the film.”
Let’s all pray to God for the quick recovery of Irrfan Khan. It’s good to be strong and think positive in this tough time.
