‘My best friend and my partner is a ‘warrior’ he is fighting every obstacle’ says Irrfan Khan’s wife Sutapa Sikdar


In the last few days, there have been speculations aplenty around Bollywood star Irrfan Khan’s health  Initial reports stated, he was suffering from rare case of jaundice, but rumours were put to rest when the actor himself tweeted about his ‘rare disease’ and that his family and friends are trying to ‘find the best way possible’. Recent reports of the actor suffering from brain cancer and being admitted to Kokilaben Hospital, Mumbai for the same has been the rounds. But that news too has been refuted. As we come to terms with the fact that Irrfan Khan is battling out an illness, his wife Sutapa Sikdar has opened up about her husband’s health on social media to throw light on what the family is currently facing. Here is what her post says:

‘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 forever 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 on 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 let’s turn our curiosity from what it is to what it should be. Let’s change the leaf.
Let’s not waste our precious energies to only know what it is and just pray to make it what it should be.
My humble request to all of you is to concentrate on the song of life, to dance 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
