Irrfan Khan‘s health has been deteriorating for quite some time now, according to spokespersons who informed the media on February 21st that the actor had been diagnosed with a severe case of jaundice. Ever since, his shoots have been postponed and Irrfan has been relatively out of the public eye. It was only today that the actor provided his well-wishers with an update on his health and the struggle to get better.
Speaking to his followers on Twitter, Khan revealed that he has been diagnosed with a “rare disease”. He goes on to describe how he feels like he’s been living a “mystery story” for the last 15 days, due to his health.

Irrfan Khan was all set to begin a film with Vishal Bharadwaj. However, due to his condition, the shoot has been delayed. Vishal spoke to a leading newspaper, stating, “I am pushing back the film by a few months as both of my lead actors are down with different health problems. Irrfan is down with jaundice and it will take him a few weeks to recover and Deepika Padukone’s back problem, which had previously developed during the shooting of ‘Padmaavat’ has now resurfaced. Her role in the film is very physically demanding and the doctor has advised her not to do any strenuous work for a couple of months.”
Furthermore, he has requested fans, followers and media not to speculate too much into his health condition as he would share the updates within a week to ten days of a conclusive diagnosis.
While we patiently await an update on his condition, here’s wishing the actor health and happiness.
