Irrfan shares first pic after treatment, he’s fighting illness with a smile

Irrfan, who is undergoing treatment for a neuroendochrine tumour in London, shared a new picture on Sunday.

Irrfan changed his display picture and fans noticed how weak and thin he looks. Yet, he’s fighting the illness with a smile.

The country was shaken to hear his diagnosis in March. Back then, he had tweeted, “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.”

He returned to social media to wish good luck to his Karwaan co-stars, Dulquer Salmaan and Mithila Pakar. The film is expected to release this August.
