Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan, who has been diagnosed with a rare type of cancer called Neuroendocrine Tumour, is currently in London for his treatment. The actor shared a happy picture on social media today. Irrfan Khan hanged his Twitter display picture and fans noticed how happy, although slightly weak, he looked in it. He is seen in a yellow T-shirt through a glass window with earphones around his neck and a big smile on his face.
He was recently announced the winner of a special Icon Award at the closing ceremony of the London Indian Film Festival (LIFF).The actor accepted the award privately after two of his films were screened at the festival this year Mostafa Sarwar Farooki's ‘Doob: No Bed of Roses’ and Anup Singh's ‘Song of Scorpions’.
In May, a picture of someone looking like Irrfan Khan was hared by Zainab Abbas, a female sports anchor from Pakistan. Sharing the picture of Irrfan Khan in it (suggestively) watching a match played between England and Pakistan at the Lord’s cricket ground, the journalist said, "Pic shared by @Furqan013 - there’s actor Irfan Khan enjoying the match at Lord’s”.
Irrfan broke the news of his illness on Twitter. Ending speculations about his disease, Irrfan tweeted in March, ''“Life is under no obligation to give us what we expect: Margaret Mitchell. The unexpected makes us grow, which is what the past few days have been about. Learning that I have been diagnosed with NeuroEndocrine Tumour as of now has now has admittedly been difficult, but the love and strength of those around me and that I found within me has brought me to a place of hope. The journey of this is taking me out of the country, and I request everyone to continue sending their wishes. As for the rumours that were floated NEURO is not always about the brain and googling is the easiest way to do research. To those who waited for my words, I hope to be back with more stories to tell.''
