Irrfan Khan sent shockwaves in the industry when he opened up about contracting “a rare disease” in a post on his Twitter account yesterday.

He wrote, “Sometimes, you wake up with a jolt with life shaking you up. The last fifteen days, my life has been a suspense story. Little had I known that my search for rare stories would make me find a rare disease.”

He further wrote, “I have never given up and have always fought for my choices and always will. My family and friends are with me… In trying times, please don’t speculate as I will myself share with you my story within a week, ten days, when the further investigations come with a conclusive diagnosis. Till then, wish the best for me.”

Though Abhinay Deo, director of Khan’s upcoming film Blackmail, admitted that the tweet left him stunned, he emphasized that it was time to stand by the actor’s side.

Abhinay said, “I read his message on Twitter and it was shocking to find out about this health. He never showed any signs of illness while we were shooting for Blackmail, nor did he mention anything about it.”

“I am sure the doctors are doing their best and providing necessary treatment. I haven’t called him because he and his family are taking care of the situation, and during such a time, they need their privacy,” he added.

That Irrfan was under the weather was revealed a fortnight ago when Vishal Bhardwaj announced that he was postponing his project based on gangster Sapna Didi owing to his lead actors’ health problems.
