For Irrfan Khan, the worst is over. His illness, for which he is undergoing treatment in London for the past several months, is receding and he’s on the way to recovery. However the healing process is still on. And it would be some time before he is in a position to return home. A prominent member of the Indian film fraternity who met Irrfan in London says he is in much better health but has suffered serious weight loss. “He looks lanky, very thin and pale. But he was upbeat and positive. And the medical procedure is working. So he’s on the way to recovery.”
Irrfan did mention returning to India. “But it would only be a brief visit home for Diwali. Then he’s back to London for the rest of his treatment,” says the source.
Hopefully Irrfan will be back home for good in the first quarter of 2019. But it would be a long while before he gets back to acting.
Earlier there were rumours that Irrfan might be returning to the movies soon, especially the sequel of Hindi Medium, his superhit 2017 film. While his fans would have certainly been happy about his return to the big screen, it appears that physically and mentally, there is still a long way to go before he dons the greasepaint again.
