It’s been around two years since actor Irrfan Khan revealed that he was diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumour and was going away from the movies for his treatment. The word came out during the release of his then-upcoming film Karwaan and now, the audience is once again gearing up to watch him on screen in his new film Angrezi Medium. Irrfan might have managed to work on the Dinesh Vijan film but he is not yet fully recovered. In an official statement released on Twitter, the actor mentioned that he won’t be promoting Angrezi Medium as he is still being treated for cancer in New York. Now, in his latest interaction with Mumbai Mirror, the actor opened up on how his illness has brought him closer to the family, especially to his wife – Sutapa Das – for whom he wants to live today.

In an emotionally worded interview, the actor wrote the answers to the questions asked by the journalist of the daily. Expressing deep gratitude and love for his wife, Irrfan mentioned that no words do justice to the kind of selfless love and care his wife has shown in the last few months. The actor said he now wants to live for Sutapa who has dedicated herself entirely to his well-being. Irrfan said, “What to say about Sutapa? She is there 24/7. She has evolved in care-giving and if I get to live, I want to live for her. She is the reason for me to keep at it still.” Also Read - Angrezi Medium Trailer Out: Irrfan Khan Returns With Apt Comic Timing, Radhika Madan's Innocence Wins Hearts
The actor said his journey on the road to recovery has been memorable and a ‘roller-coaster ride’. He added that he has become more patient in life today and has learnt to remove ‘noises’ from his life by becoming selective. Irrfan said, ” It’s been a roller-coaster ride, a memorable one. Happy moments were underlined because of the inherent uncertainty. We cried a little and laughed a lot. We became one huge body.” Also Read - Irrfan Khan Makes You Tear up With His Emotional Message For Audience Through Angrezi Medium Teaser
