Irrfan's spokesperson asks fans not to believe in rumours: We will keep you updated
On Tuesday, Bollywood actor Irrfan was admitted to the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Mumbai due to a colon infection. The actor is currently in ICU (Intensive Care Unit) and is under constant supervision of experts.
Irrfan’s spokesperson issued a statement on Wednesday and urged people not to panic or believe in false rumours regarding the actor's health. He also assured fans that they will be updated about the same.
The full statement by Irrfan’s spokesperson reads, “It’s really disappointing to know that there are extreme assumptions being made about Irrfan’s health. While we are truly appreciative that people are concerned, it’s disheartening to see some sources spread extreme rumours and creating panic. Irrfan is a strong person and is still fighting the battle. We really request you to not fall for rumours and not partake in these conversations which are fictional. We have always actively clarified and shared updates on his health and we will continue doing so.”
On Saturday, Irrfan's mother, Saeeda Begum, breathed her last in Jaipur. The actor couldn’t attend the funeral due to the nationwide lockdown.
Irrfan was diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumour in 2018 and sought treatment in the UK for a year. The actor returned to India in February 2019 and shortly resumed shooting for his film, Angrezi Medium.
