In his latest tweet, Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan opened up about his much talked about ‘rare disease’ by saying that he’s been suffering from Neuroendocrine Tumor.
He wrote, “The unexpected makes us grow, which is what the past few days have been about. Learning that I have been diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Tumour as of now has admittedly been difficult, but the love and strength of those around me and that I found within me has brought me to a place of hope. The journey of this is taking me out of the country, and I request everyone to continue sending their wishes. As for the rumours that were floated NEURO is not always about the brain and googling is the easiest way to do research ;-) To those who waited for my words, I hope to be back with more stories to tell.”
Few days back, Irrfan on his twitter page, had shared, “Sometimes you wake up with a jolt with life-shaking you up. The last 15 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’ve 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 possible way. 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’s wife Sutapa Sikdar in her open letter on Facebook, had called her husband a ‘warrior.’
She wrote, “My best friend and my partner is a ‘warrior’ he is fighting every obstacle with tremendous grace and beauty. I apologize for not answering calls msgs,but I want all of you to know I am truly humbled indebted for ever for the wishes prayers and concern from all over the world.
I am grateful to god and my partner for making me a warrior too. I am at present focused in the strategies of the battlefield, which I have to conquer.
It wasn’t and isn’t and is not going to be easy but the hope ignited by the magnitude of family, friends and fans of irrfan has made me only optimistic and almost sure of the victory.
I know curiosity germinates from concern but lets turn our curiosity from what it is to what it should be. Lets change the leaf.
Lets not waste our precious energies to only know what it is and just prey to make it what it should be.
My humble request to all of you is to concentrate on the song of life, to dance of life to victory.
My family will soon join in this dance of life.
Thank you all from bottom of our heart.
Sutapa irrfan babil ayaan.”
