Critically acclaimed actor Irrfan Khan is undergoing treatment of neuroendocrine tumour in London. In March, Irrfan announced on Twitter that he has been diagnosed with a rare disease and will be out of the country for the treatment. Recently, Irrfan also wrote a blog narrating how he is battling the disease.
A few days ago, reports of Shah Rukh Khan helping Irrfan Khan were doing the rounds on social media. An entertainment portal claimed that Shah Rukh, who knows Irrfan from his theatre days rushed to his home as soon as he got to know about the disease. He even handed over keys of his London home so that Irrfan and his family could feel at home.
The report further claimed that Irrfan's wife Sutapa Sikdar called SRK before flying to London for the treatment. However, these reports are mere rumours and hold no truth as Irrfan's spokesperson has released an official statement denying the occurrence of any such incident.
Outright denying the report, the statement reads: “The story floating around of Shahrukh and Irrfan is a fragment of imagination of some individual who has whipped out the story through their unreliable sources. It has no truth to it. While the duo are friends, the story of their meeting and the subsequent incidents has no truth.''
On the professional front, Shah Rukh Khan will next be seen in Aanand L Rai's Zero, co-starring Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma. On the other hand, Irrfan, whose last film was Abhinav Deol's Blackmail will next be seen in Karwan and Puzzle.
