We are pretty aware of the situation that Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan is suffering from a ‘rare disease’ (as he had tweeted recently) and owing to his ill health, the Hindi Medium actor’s upcoming film Sapna Didi, which is Vishal Bhardwaj’s adaptation of crime reporter author Hussain Zaidi’s gangster story, that features Deepika Padukone as the female lead, will be postponed. In a statement to Deccan Chronicle, a source had said, “It’s unlikely that he will return to shooting actively for quite a while now… I can’t put a number on his absence of leave. But the treatment is going to be a long process.”
Now as per the latest reports, Irrfan Khan and Deepika Padukone starrer Sapna Didi may be shelved. Yes, you read that right. Speculations are rife that Bhardawaj’s dream project will be shelved as the reports suggest that the Life of Pi actor has apparently headed to the US for treatment. A source close to Vishal told the website, “Irrfan was the most suited actor for the story of this film. There are bleak chances of the film being revived. We have been told that Irrfan will be heading to America for health treatment.” ALSO READ: Irrfan Khan – Deepika Padukone’s Sapna Didi To Get Delayed Further, Producer Prernaa Arora Opens Up
