Vishal Bhardwaj Awaits His Warrior Irrfan Khan, Reschedules Shoot With Deepika

In the long letter which Piku actor Irrfan Khan shared a few days back with his fans, he was hoping to get back with more stories to tell. Now, with this, Vishal Bhardwaj who was supposed to start shooting for his upcoming film with Irrfan and Deepika has decided to wait until he the former is cured of Neuroendocrine Tumour.

Vishal shared the news of Twitter and wrote, “Irrfan is a warrior and we know he will conquer this battle. Therefore @deepikapadukone, Prernaa @kriarj and I have decided to reschedule our film and start with renewed energy and celebration when our warrior returns as a winner.

A few days ago, Irrfan penned an open letter and shared it with his fans. He wrote, “Life is under no obligation to give us what we expect”. The actor went on to add, “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 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.”

When Irrfan declared about him catching a rare disease, several speculations started about his illness. Irrfan’s wife Sutapa Sikdar shared a post on Facebook and requested everyone to stop speculating about the rare disease.

She wrote, “My best friend and my partner is a ‘warrior’ he is fighting every obstacle with tremendous grace and beauty. I apologize for not answering calls msgs, but I want all of you to know I am truly humbled indebted for ever for the wishes prayers and concern from all over the world. I am grateful to god and my partner for making me a warrior too. I am at present focused in the strategies of the battlefield which I have to conquer.”

“It wasn’t and isn’t and is not going to be easy but the hope ignited by the magnitude of family ,friends and fans of irrfan has made me only optimistic and almost sure of the victory. I know curiosity germinates from concern but lets turn our curiosity from what it is to what it should be. Lets change the leaf. Lets not waste our precious energies to only know what it is and just prey to make it what it should be,” she added.

“My humble request to all of you is to concentrate on the song of life, to dance of life to victory. My family will soon join in this dance of life. Thank you all from bottom of our heart. Sutapa irrfan babil ayaan."
