New Delhi: Actor Irrfan Khan, who is battling neuro-endocrine tumour (as he revealed last week) has reached London, apparently for his treatment - Irrfan Khan said in his statement, released on Twitter, that he would be travelling abroad for his treatment. On Monday, Irrfan Khan, 51, in an Instagram post shared a picture of his shadow along with a poem by Rainer Maria Rilke. "Learning that I have been diagnosed with neuro-endocrine 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," Irrfan had said in his statement.
