MUMBAI: Actor Irrfan Khan, in a recent tweet shared that he has contracted a rare disease and is undergoing further tests to reach a conclusive diagnosis. The actor was previously believed to have been diagnosed with jaundice and was undergoing treatment for that. However, that doesn’t appear to be the case anymore.
In a Twitter post, Khan wrote, “Sometimes you wake up with a jolt with life shaking you up. The last fifteen 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. I have never given up and have always fought for my choices and always will. My family and friends are with me and we are working it out the best way possible. In trying times, please don’t speculate as I will myself share with you my story within a week – ten days when the further investigations come with a conclusive diagnosis. Till then, wish the best for me.”

Irrfan who has several projects lined up had taken a break from his shoots in order to recover. The actor is also set to appear opposite Deepika Padukone in a Vishal Bhardwaj film reportedly inspired by the life of Mumbai’s mafia queen, Sapna Didi. However, in a Facebook post, Bhardwaj announced that the film had been delayed to Irrfan’s ill-health and Padukone’s back pain.
