Nobody knows what has happened to Irrfan Khan except for the fact that he’s suffering from a ‘rare disease.’ He had himself issued a statement saying, “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.” While prayers have been pouring in for the ailing actor ever since. Deepika Padukone was recently asked what’s her say on Irrfan’s health and if at all she knows what is he going through considering they were looking forward to reuniting with Vishal Bhardwaj’s next. However, Deepika seems as clueless as we are.
Praying for Irrfan’s speedy recovery, Deepika said, “He is someone I absolutely love not just as an actor but as a person. I have had one of my most special films and experiences as an actor with him. Piku will always be my all-time favourite and special films and I think he has a large part in that. But that’s it. Honestly, I do not know where he is. I do not know what has happened to him. And I think like he has requested there are times when people just need to be left alone for sometime and figure their lives out. I really think we should respect that space they have all requested for. But like we said, hope for the best and say a little prayer.” Here, watch the full video below:
Talking about Deepika and Irrfan’s film which now looks very uncertain, producer Prernaa Arora said, “We were about to begin shooting from next week. Vishal had just come back from his final recce. We were excited about the project; now this has happened. Irrfan and Deepika are our first and only choice. Life is so unpredictable. Every moment is a reminder to not take life for granted. When Vishal learnt about Irrfan’s illness, I felt very uneasy. I just wish he gets well soon. He is a fighter, a self-made success story and an inspiration to so many of us.”
Let’s see what destiny holds for Irrfan. Until then, keep watching this space for more updates.
