- Irrfan Khan is being treated for neuroendocrine tumour abroad
Irrfan Khan opened up about his condition in March after he was diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumour. He updated fans about his health on Twitter, saying: "Learning that I have been diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumour as of now has admittedly been difficult... I hope to be back with more stories to tell."
In March it was reported that Irrfan is consulting Ayurveda doctors for the treatment but the rumours were slammd by his spokesperson, who said in a statement: "He at one point had contacted him but other than one phone call there has been no conversation or consultation whatsoever. It is unacceptable to be using someone's illness for your own publicity and personal gain."
Apart from the health updates, Irrfan made his presence felt on the social media scantily. Soon after his tweet revealing the "rare disease" he was suffering from, Irrfan instagrammed a picture from London.

Irrfan was last seen on the big screen in Balckmail, which released while he was abroad for the treatment. Irrfan Khan had also signed Vishal Bhardwaj's yet-untitled film, co-starring Deepika Padukone, before his diagnosis.
