NEW DELHI: Actor Irrfan Khan has finally confirmed that he was suffering from a high-grade neuroendocrine cancer, after being diagnosed with a rare disease. In a special note, published in , Irrfan said that the cancer he’d been diagnosed with was rare and had more unpredictability of its treatment.
In an emotional note, he said, “It’s been quite some time now since I have been diagnosed with a high-grade neuroendocrine cancer. This new name in my vocabulary, I got to know, was rare, and due to fewer study cases, and less information comparatively, the unpredictability of the treatment was more. I was part of a trial-and-error game. I had been in a different game, I was travelling on a speedy train ride, had dreams, plans, aspirations, goals, was fully engaged in them. And suddenly someone taps on my shoulder and I turn to see. It’s the TC: “Your destination is about to come. Please get down.” I am confused: “No, no. My destination hasn’t come.” “No, this is it. This is how it is sometimes.”
“The suddenness made me realise how you are just a cork floating in the ocean with UNPREDICTABLE currents! And you are desperately trying to control it.”
He wrote, “As I was entering the hospital, drained, exhausted, listless, I hardly realised my hospital was on the opposite side of Lord’s, the stadium. The Mecca of my childhood dream. Amidst the pain, I saw a poster of a smiling Vivian Richards. Nothing happened, as if that world didn’t ever belong to me.
The popular Bollywood actor then revealed that he had finally surrendered himself to his fate adding that ‘the only thing certain was the uncertainty.
