He was diagnosed with rare type of tumour which could develop into cancer 2 years ago. He had to immediately stop acting in films, he was doing then and he flew to New York for treatment.
After 9 months, he returned to India and within three to four months, he started acting in films again. He started Angrezi Medium with Kareena Kapoor but the film cannot progress now.
His health started deteriorating further all of a sudden and doctors advised him to re-admit into special Oncology centre in USA.
He and his wife, left to New York after informing to producers and he will have to take a break of 8 months again, to complete the treatment.
As it is a rare type of neurological tumour and cyst, it takes longer time to heal, it seems. Irfan wrote a huge emotional letter, the first time around, when he joined the hospital for treatment that his future is bleak to him.
But he could come back sooner than many expected. Now, his fans and supporters are asking him to take good care of his health and come back doubly healthier and stronger. We wish him all health too.
