Irrfan Khan was the first celebrity in 2018 who shocked us with the announcement of his illness in March. He gave hints about his descending health on Twitter, where he’s most active. Then the ‘Lunchbox’ actor disclosed that he’s suffering from neuroendocrine tumour, a rare disease for which he’s “fighting over choices”. Irrfan Khan’s picture as a healthy actor is just what his fans want to see.
After him, another blow came when ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’ actress Sonali Bendre disclosed that she’s got metastatic cancer. Her pictures before chemotherapy were the talk of social media:

The strong actor is fighting this disease like a warrior. Earlier, Irrfan Khan’s picture from Lord’s cricket ground in London, where he’s undergoing treatment, went viral on social media.
In June, the talented actor won the IIFA for Best Actor for his role in Hindi Medium. He wasn’t present, but thanked IIFA via Twitter with this message:

As Irrfan Khan’s picture from Lord’s clearly looked like he’s weaker, he was still in an upbeat mood. He may have disguised it with clothing, but his courage is remarkable in this new post:
‘As if I was tasting life for the first time, the magical side of it.’ https://t.co/GX0CqfjSVX

In an interview, Irrfan stated: “It’s been quite some time now since been diagnosed with a high-grade neuroendocrine cancer. This new name in my vocabulary. I was part of a trial-and-error game.” Read his full excerpt here.
Irrfan is currently promoting his upcoming project Karwaan by sharing its songs on Twitter.
"Mai apne hi mann ka hosla hoon, hai soya jahan par main jagaa hoon,
Peeli seher ka nasha hoon,
Madhosh tha ab yahan hoon" ~ https://t.co/CR94sN7UhG #KarwaanJukebox@raiisonai @RonnieScrewvala @MrAkvarious @prateekkuhad @dulQuer @mipalkar @RSVPMovies @IshkaFilms @TSeries
