This is the first tweet that arrived on Irrfan Khan's timeline in over two months - his previous tweet was on March 15, in which he revealed he was diagnosed with a neuro-endocrine tumour. "The unexpected makes us grow, which is what the past few days have been about. 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 has brought me hope," read a part of his tweet.
On March 5, Irrfan Khan tweeted to say that he's fighting a "rare disease": "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," he had tweeted. Later, Irrfan Khan was taken to London, where he is currently believed to be undergoing treatment.
Last seen in Blackmail, Irrfan Khan has a movie with his Piku co-star Deepika Padukone in the line-up, about which director Vishal Bhardwaj had tweeted: "Irrfan is a warrior and we know he will conquer this battle. Therefore Deepika Padukone, Prernaa and I have decided to reschedule our film and start with renewed energy and celebration when our warrior returns as a winner." The film will be based on Mumbai's female mafia don Sapna Didi.
