Irrfan Khan on cancer battle: “If I get to live, I want to live for my wife”
Irrfan Khan has has opened up about his battle with cancer after he was diagnosed with the illness in 2018.
The actor, who will be soon seen in ‘Angrezi Medium’ told Mumbai Mirror, “It’s been a roller-coaster ride, a memorable one. Happy moments were underlined because of the inherent uncertainty. We cried a little and laughed a lot. We became one huge body. You screen out noises …You are selective about what you want to filter in. I have gone through tremendous anxiety but have somehow managed to control it, then, let go. You are playing hopscotch all the time.”
Talking about the constant support from his wife, Sutapa Sikdar and children Babil Khan and Ayan Khan, Irrfan said, “And the best part is that I have had all the time literally to see them evolve. A crucial time for a teenager, like the younger one. The older one isn’t a teenager anymore. What to say about Sutapa (wife) She is there 24/7. She has evolved in care-giving and if I get to live, I want to live for her. She is the reason for me to keep at it still.”
‘Angrezi Medium’, which also stars Radhika Madan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, is a heartwarming story of a girl who wants to study in London and how her father does everything in his power to make her dream come true.
