The Evergreen artist of B-town, hit the headlines earlier this year by informing his fans about the disease he discovered. Irrfan Khan earlier talked about the immense pain he has been suffering from because of neuroendocrine cancer. But, since then, he did not tell much about his disease, even though it is a very big shock to his fans. It is commendable that how his fans respected the seriousness of the issue and did not intrude the privacy of the actor.
Irrfan’s friends and other close people also respected the privacy, resulting, in no further information about what is exactly happening to him. even Irrfan himself did not involve himself in any conversation regarding the issue with media or anyone.
But recently, he became open about his disease and how it is becoming a major turmoil as the time is passing. he uploaded a family picture from London, the place where he is taking the treatment to cure neuroendocrine cancer.
while talking to Times of India, Irrfan spoke,
It’s been quite some time now since I have been diagnosed with a high-grade neuroendocrine cancer. This new name in my vocabulary, I got to know, was rare, and due to fewer study cases, and less information comparatively, the unpredictability of the treatment was more. I was part of a trial-and-error game,”
In this chaos, shocked, afraid and in panic, while on one of the terrifying hospital visits, I blabber to my son, ‘The only thing I expect from ME is not to face this crisis in this present state. I desperately need my feet. Fear and panic should not overrule me and make me miserable.’ That was my INTENTION. AND THEN PAIN HIT.”
during the talk, Irrfan Khan stated that this realization has made him ‘submit, surrender and trust, irrespective of outcome’
“As I was entering the hospital, drained, exhausted, listless, I hardly realised my hospital was on the opposite side of Lord’s, the stadium. The Mecca of my childhood dream. Amidst the pain, I saw a poster of a smiling Vivian Richards. Nothing happened, as if that world didn’t ever belong to me. I was left with this immense effect of the enormous power and intelligence of the cosmos. The peculiarity of MY hospital’s location – it HIT me. The only thing certain was the uncertainty. All I could do was to realise my strength and play my game better,”
