It was last year that Irrfan Khan shared the shocking news of being detected with neuroendocrine tumour, a form of cancer. For almost a year, the actor was receiving medical treatment in London. Now, since more than a month, he has been in and out of India, for work purposes, indicating that his health is recovering quite well.
After making few public appearances, the actor has now shared on social media, by penning a heartfelt message and thanking everyone to help him in his process of healing. Irrfan announces his return to Bollywood in a sweet manner, as he writes, “Maybe somewhere in the pursuit of winning, we forget how much it means to be loved. In our vulnerability, we are reminded. As I leave my footprints onto these steps of my life, I want to pause to be grateful for recieving your immense love and support, it soothed me in my process of healing. So I travel back to you, thanking you from the bottom of my heart.”
A while back, the actor was snapped outside Dinesh Vijan’s office. He has started prep-work on the second instalment of Hindi Medium. The first part had released in 2017 and was a grand success. Speaking of getting Irrfan back for the sequel, Vijan had told Indian Express, “He (Irrfan Khan) has gotten back. We are just putting the finishing touches to the script. I think it is too early to talk about it. But we will like to make it this year. I feel (since) he has come back, let him get comfortable. He is doing lovely. He is back in the city.”
We can’t wait to see Irrfan return to the big screen.
