Last month we reported how Pakistani anchor Zainab Abbas shared a picture of Irrfan Khan watching a match between England and Pakistan at Lords. As per her, Irrfan’s picture was originally shared by Furqan Bhatti who works as a cameraman for a news website. The actor was suffering from Neuro Endocrine Tumor which is why he left the country for further treatment. Though there was no confirmation on that picture, we can now say that it was the actor in the recent picture that went viral. Irrfan Khan’s new display picture on Twitter proves the same. The actor is seen enjoying a cricket match with his family.

Irrfan Khan this morning surprised everyone after he opened up about his fight against Neuro Endocrine Tumour which the actor was diagnosed with a few months ago. While talking about it, the Piku actor wrote, “The only thing I expect from ME is not to face this crisis in this present state. I desperately need my feet. Fear and panic should not overrule me and make me miserable,” further adding, “That was my INTENTION. AND THEN PAIN HIT. As if all this while, you were just getting to know pain, and now you know his nature and his intensity. Nothing was working; NO consolation, no motivation. The entire cosmos becomes one at that moment – just PAIN, and pain felt more enormous than GOD.” Take a look at Irrfan enjoying a cricket match with his family below:

The actor also spoke about Lords and how it played a big role in him coming to terms with his illness and his journey so far. He said, “As I was entering the hospital, drained, exhausted, listless, I hardly realised my hospital was on the opposite side of Lord’s, the stadium. The Mecca of my childhood dream. Amidst the pain, I saw a poster of a smiling Vivian Richards. Nothing happened, as if that world didn’t ever belong to me.”
