Irrfan Khan is responding well to treatment
Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar, who directed Irrfan Khan in 'Piku', has shared a positive update on his health. Sircar said that Irrfan is responding well to treatment and is in an extremely positive frame of mind at the moment. The National Award winning director hopes to start his next film with the 'Hindi Medium' star by year-end. Irrfan is suffering from Neuroendocrine Tumour.
Irrfan is on his way to recovery
Sircar told a tabloid, "I've been speaking to both Irrfan and his wife, he's responding well to the treatment and trying to cope with the knowledge that he's battling Neuroendocrine Tumour by treating the recuperation in Europe like a short and unexpected holiday." "I'm planning to visit him next month," he added.
Sircar will reunite with Irrfan for the Udham Singh biopic
Talking about the project, Sircar said, "We hope to roll by the end of this year but will wait till Irrfan is completely fit and ready to shoot."
Meanwhile, Irrfan's next film will be out in August
Irrfan will be next seen in debutant director Akarsh Khurana's 'Karwaan' alongside Malayalam heartthrob Dulquer Salmaan and Marathi actor Mithila Palkar. The film is a light-hearted comedy and will hit the screens on August 10. The actor shared the poster of the film on Twitter a few days back. 'Karwaan' will be Irrfan's second release of the year after Abhinay Deo's 'Blackmail'.
It was Irrfan's first tweet in months
