Indian film actor Irrfan Khan is diagnosed with a ‘rare disease’. In a post on Twitter the Bollywood icon said, “The last fifteen 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.” Khan added that he should know more about the disease in coming weeks.
Irrfan Khan`s tweet about his `rare disease` on Monday (March 5) left Bollywood and his fans shocked and worried. While the icon has asked for privacy and time to figure out what`s happening with him, a few are speculating and circulating `unconfirmed` rumors that suggest that he has been diagnosed with brain cancer.
A number of Indian media reports that that the actor had to be taken to a Mumbai hospital immediately after he was identified with Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) Grade IV, also called `Death on Diagnosis`. Irrfan had been having convulsion attacks along with slurring of speech.
This might be misleading and the actor has clearly asked for time and requested `not to speculate` as he will himself share the story once the results are out.
Khan, 51, has acted in more than 100 films, including local hits Piku, Maqbool, Haasil and Paan Singh Tomar. He is among India’s best-known international stars having starred in English-language films including Life of Pi, Slumdog Millionaire and The Amazing Spider-Man.
