Irrfan Khan has been away from the media glare for a long time. The actor was off to a foreign after he was diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer. Irrfan's absence from the movies left his fans and well-wishers disheartened but the actor kept updating them about his health once in a while. It took nearly a year for the Lunchbox star to recover from the ailment and now he is back in action. The day Irrfan Khan returned to India, his wife, Sutapa Sikdar, penned a heartfelt note thanking everyone for their best wishes to the actor. Say for that matter, the actor himself expressed gratitude to his fans, industry friends and colleagues who prayed for his speedy recovery.
Days after he returned to India, Irrfan headed to Udaipur to commence the shoot of Homi Adjania's Angrezi Medium. The actor has been filming for the same with Radhika Madan for over a month now. While we wait for the movie to release on the big screen, Irrfan has now opened up about his healing process and thanked his media friends for respecting his journey.
"Last few months have been on a road to recovery a period to heal to fight the fatigue and face the reel and real world. I am aware of your concern and request to talk to you, share my journey, but I am fathoming it myself inhaling and internalising, taking baby steps to merge my healing with work and trying to experiment the amalgamation of both. I am deeply touched by your wishes, your prayers and it means a lot for me and my family. I truly respect the way you respected my journey giving me time and space to heal. Thank you for your patience and the warmth and the love all through this overwhelming journey," Irrfan mentioned in a statement to press.
And well, this isn't the first note the actor has written since his return. On April 3, Irrfan had written a heartfelt note on his Twitter handle which read, "I leave my footprints onto these steps of my life, I want to pause to be grateful for receiving your immense love and support, it soothed me in my process of healing. So I travel back to you, thanking you from the bottom of my heart."
Coming back to Angrezi Medium, it features Radhika Madan as Irrfan Khan's daughter whereas Kareena Kapoor Khan essays the role of a cop.
