The actor said, “You screen out noises …You are selective about what you want to filter in. I have gone through tremendous but have somehow managed to control it, then, let go. You are playing hopscotch all the time.

Speaking about battling the disease together as a family, Irrfan Khan had said that it had been a roller-coaster ride, a memorable one. The actor said, “It has been a roller-coaster ride, a memorable one. Happy moments were underlined because of the inherent uncertainty. We cried a little and laughed a lot. We became a huge body."


Meanwhile, in March 2018, Irrfan Khan was diagnosed with the rare disease and had left for further treatment to London. Khan briefly visited India in February 2019 and shot his last film Angrezi Medium during that period.
