Irrfan Khan pens heartfelt note to fans, media after battling cancer
MUMBAI: Indian actor Irrfan Khan has released a long note, thanking his fans and friends in media for all the love, prayers and wishes that came his way in the last one year.
The 52-year-old Bollywood actor returned from London after battling treatment for one year. He had gone to UK in 2018 after being diagnosed with the disease.
In a heartfelt note, Irrfan narrated his road to recovery and fighting the fatigue.
“With Love, to all my friends in the media! Last few months have been on a road to recovery a period to heal to fight the fatigue and face the reel and real world. I am aware of your concern and request to talk to you, share my journey, but I am fathoming it myself inhaling and internalising, taking baby steps to merge my healing with work and trying to experiment the amalgamation of both.”
“I am deeply touched by your wishes, your prayers and it means a lot for me and my family. I truly respect the way you respected my journey giving me time and space to heal. Thank you for your patience and the warmth and the love all through this overwhelming journey.”
“I feel an urge to share with you something. I live my life in widening rings which spread over earth and sky. I may not ever complete the last one, but that is what I will try. I circle around God’s primordial tower, and I circle ten thousand years long; And I still don’t know if I’m a falcon, a storm, or an unfinished song’ – Rilke,” the actor signed off the note.
Irrfan is currently shooting the sequel to his 2016 hit film, Hindi Medium, Titled Angrezi Medium.
The film also stars Radhika Madan, Kareena Kapoor and Deepak Dobriyal.
