Bollywood star Irrfan Khan, who has wowed audiences all over the world with his impeccable acting, recently in a statement, said that he is suffering from a ‘rare disease’ and just two days ago, the actor took to Twitter to update his friends, fans and well-wishers about his illness. In his second statement, the actor revealed that he has been diagnosed with NeuroEndocrine Tumour. These tweets soon led to speculations that the actor’s much-anticipated gangster drama Sapna Didi with Vishal Bhardwaj and Deepika Padukone has been shelved. However, filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj refuted the rumours.
Bhardwaj, who is very hopeful, took to his micro-blogging site to write that he will start his film with the actor, only when “warrior” Irrfan Khan returns as “winner” after conquering his health condition. Bhardwaj, who decided to postpone his film in view of Irrfan’s health, on Monday, tweeted, “Irrfan is a warrior and we know he will conquer this battle. Therefore, Deepika Padukone, Prernaa Arora (co-producer) and I have decided to reschedule our film and start with renewed energy and celebration when our warrior returns as a winner.” ALSO READ: Irrfan Khan’s Wife Sutapa Sikdar On His Health: Not Easy But Optimistic Of Victory
