Irrfan Khan was first down with jaundice but now it is understood that the source of the problem lay elsewhere. The Hindi Medium actor has confirmed that he is suffering from a rare disease though he has not named the problem that has afflicted him. The 51-year-old actor wants to maintain the privacy around his health and thus, requested people not to 'speculate' his illness.
In a cryptic yet telling post, Irrfan tweeted, "Sometimes you wake up with a jolt with life shaking you up. The last 15 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. I have never given up and have always fought for my choices and always will. My family and friends are with me and we are working it out the best way possible. In trying times, please don't speculate as I will myself share with you my story within a week - 10 days, when further investigations come with a conclusive diagnosis. Till then, wish the best for me." Before his health restricted him to rest, Irrfan was set start his prep work for Vishal Bhardwaj's next, also starring Deepika Padukone.
