New Delhi : Irrfan Khan, who is currently shooting for a film after a year-long break following his neuroendocrine tumour diagnosis, says he is on the road to recovery but still needs space to heal.
The 52-year-old actor received treatment in a London hospital and returned to the country early this year.
In a statement, addressed to his “friends in the media”, the actor said he has been getting requests to share his story but needs more time to process it.
“Last few months have been on a road to recovery a period to heal to fight the fatigue and face the reel and real world.
“I am aware of your concern and request to talk to you, share my journey, but I am fathoming it myself inhaling and internalising, taking baby steps to merge my healing with work and trying to experiment the amalgamation of both,” Irrfan said.
The actor is currently shooting for “Angrezi Medium”, the much-anticipated sequel to his 2017 blockbuster “Hindi Medium”.
Irrfan said he was grateful for all the well wishes he received from his friends in the media fraternity.
“I am deeply touched by your wishes, your prayers and it means a lot for me and my family. I truly respect the way you respected my journey giving me time and space to heal,” the actor said.
“Thank you for your patience and the warmth and the love all through this overwhelming journey,” he added.
