New Delhi: Actor Irrfan Khan on Friday revealed that he is suffering from a NueroEndocrine tumour. In his statement on Twitter, he also said that he is moving out of the country for his further treatment.
Speculations were rife that Irrfan is going to the United States but the recent reports suggest that the actor has already left for London.
As per a report published in Deccan Chronicle, a London-based Indian doctor has extensively researched on NeuroEndocrine Tumour and will take charge of Irrfan’s treatment.A close friend of the actor told the daily, “The doctor has closely examined Irrfan’s case and has reassured both him and his family that there’s no immediate danger to his life and that his condition is completely curable. Irrfan and his wife have agreed to let this Indian doctor take charge of his treatment.”
The report further revealed that Irrfan is expected to be in London for the next few months and his family opted London over the United States considering the English capital will be a more dependable and comprehensive option of treatment.
Barely a few days ago, Irrfan had shared a cryptic Twitter post saying he is suffering from a 'rare' disease and that he will confirm about his situation in coming days. "Sometimes you wake up with a jolt with life-shaking you up. The last 15 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," he had tweeted on March 5.
Irrfan than revealed the name of the disease he is suffering from, he began his statement with an emotional quote by Margaret Mitchell -- "Life is under no obligation to give us what we expect." He also clarified that in the post that contrary to the rumours that were floating around, 'NEURO' is not always about the brain and that googling is not always the easiest way to research.
"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," he said in the tweet.
Earlier Irrfan's wife had called her husband a 'warrior' and had asked the media to not make speculations about his health.
Last month, director Vishal Bhardwaj had announced to push back his upcoming project titled 'Rani' with Deepika Padukone and Irrfan as the two actors were down with health problems. "I am pushing back the film by a few m.onths as both of my lead actors are down with different health problems. Irrfan is down with jaundice," he said.
