This Is What Bollywood Has To Say On Irrfan Khan’s Health

The Hollywood and Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan has put his fans globally in a very restless mood through a tweet which he posted some days back concerning about his health.

On March 5 he tweeted:

Irrfan Khan was shooting along with actress ‘Deepika Padukone’ for director Vishal Bhardwaj’s movie named ‘Sapna Didi’ – the shoot has been put on a hold due to the actor’s poor health. Khan has also skipped the promotions of his upcoming film which will be releasing on 6th April – ‘Blackmail’.

The actor’s chronic illness just came some days after the demise of Bollywood’s first female superstar ‘Sridevi’ who died in Dubai last month under the influence of alcohol drowning herself in the bathtub.

Recently, actress Chitrangada Singh was asked about Irrfan’s health as both of them have been co-stars in ‘Yeh Saali Zindagi’, the actress wished him all the best, hope to work along with him really soon and is very positive on his health.


Khan has worked with director Shoojit Sircar in ‘Piku’. Sircar told PTI, “I think Irrfan has already issued a press statement and asked not to speculate (about his health). He is the only actor who is actually called a Hollywood star in our country, who has worked with the top of the line directors. I’ve met him two-three times, he is going to issue a statement again. All your questions will be answered. He is a wonderful human being, I am very close to him. Please don’t worry. He is fine now, and he will issue a statement again. But please, I fold my hands, don’t speculate.”

Actress Deepika Padukone was asked about the actor’s health at the Hello Hall of Fame Awards,  “Like he has requested, there are times when people just need to be left alone for sometime and figure their lives out. And I think we should respect that space that he has requested for. Like we said, let’s hope for the best.”

‘Satya’ actor Manoj Bajpayee shared a note on Irrfan’s health, “Request all to stop speculations about Irrfan’s health and wait for the official confirmation from his side. It’s quite intensive to guess and spread rumours about anyone’s illness. Please delete all the posts and pray for his health. He will fight it out and come out like a champion. Praying for his speedy recovery. Lets all respect his privacy.”

Irrfan tweeted:

People have been praying for the actor’s good health and hoping that he emerges stronger from the storm.
