The superbly talented Irrfan Khan shocked his fans with a message on his Twitter handle Monday, where he wrote that he has found a rare disease, and will announce details in a week’s time. Khan, whose upcoming ‘Blackmail’ is being promoted now, had shown no signs of an illness on the sets, as revealed by director Abhinay Deo.
Deo also confirmed that he wasn’t aware of Khan’s ill health, “I read his message on Twitter and it was shocking to find about his health. He never showed any signs of illness while we were shooting for Blackmail, nor did he mention anything about it. I am sure the doctors are doing their best and providing necessary treatment. I haven’t called him because he and his family are taking care of the situation, and during such a time, they need their privacy. As of now, the film is going to release as per schedule on April 6. It all depends on what news comes from Irrfan and his doctors’ end. Then we can take a call and defer the release, if needed,” as reported by Pinkvilla.
‘Blackmail’ also stars Kirti Kulhari and Divya Dutta.
