Irrfan’s first-person account of his slow healing process in London has triggered of hope of his full recovery and return. The Blackmail star gave a heart-rending interview to an Indian newspaper on how his battle against cancer had made him “surrender” and accept the reality.
However, a filmmaker-friend who was in London recently said Irrfan has “grown very thin and frail. But he’s recovering.” In fact sources say Irrfan should be expected back in India by the end of the year, going by progress in his recovery. This is great news for his fans, friends and family who have been praying for the actor’s recovery ever since his condition was diagnosed a few months ago.
On his work front, Irrfan has three films ready for release. In July, Irrfan has his next international release, the renowned director Mark Turtletaub’s Puzzle where he plays one of the leads alongside Kelly MacDonald. Akarsh Khurana’s Karwaan in August (which launches Malayalam actor Dulquer Salman in Bollywood) will be followed by Anup Singh’s The Song Of Scorpions.
After his return to India, Irrfan is expected to shoot for Vishal Bhardwaj’s film with Deepika Padukone.
