Irrfan Khan

With Irrfan Khan’s health taking a turn for the worse a few weeks ago, Vishal Bhardwaj has been left in limbo over his next film, also starring Deepika Padukone.

The film tentatively titled ‘Sapna Didi’ is very much happening, despite reports that the film could get shelved.

Talking about this, Bhardwaj was cited in The Asian Age saying, “The moment Irrfan recovers and comes back, we will start rolling. It will happen.”

Khan is undergoing treatment in London after being diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumour. Bhardwaj said, “By God’s grace, he is recovering, and we are all praying for him. We hope he comes back soon and starts working,” he says, adding, “I keep chatting with him, and these days he’s singing songs, recording them, and sending them on WhatsApp. He’s also watching cricket.”
