Mumbai: In a heartbreaking post, actor Irrfan Khan says he is suffering from a rare disease and is fighting for choices.

On February 21, the actor’s spokesperson had released a statement, saying that he has been diagnosed with a “severe case of jaundice”.

Last month, filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj had announced that he was pushing back his film, starring Deepika Padukone and Irrfan.

“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,” the filmmaker had said.

Now, Irrfan has shared that he has a rare disease and has requested people not to speculate.

Here’s what his full statement read:

Sometimes you wake up with a jolt with life shaking you up. 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. I have never given up and have always fought for my choices and always will.My family and friends are with me and we are working it out the best way possible. In trying times, please don’t speculate as I will myself share with you my story within a week – ten days, when the further investigations come with a conclusive diagnosis. Till then, wish the best for me!- the 51-year-old actor wrote in a Twitter post.

 On the work front, Irrfan will next be seen in Abhinay Deo’s film Blackmail, which is slated to be release on April 6, 2018.
