Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar has urged fans and media to not speculate over actor Irrfan Khan’s health informing them that the actor is fine now. He added that Khan will soon issue an official statement in this regard. The two have worked together in 2015 film Piku, which also starred Deepika Padukone and Amitabh Bachchan.
The director told that he has met Irrfan few times and is close to him. He urged with ‘folded hands’ to not speculate over the actor's health.
“I think Irrfan has already issued a press statement and asked not to speculate (about his health). He is the only actor who is actually called a Hollywood star in our country, who has worked with the top of the line directors. I’ve met him two-three times, he is going to issue a statement again. All your questions will be answered. He is a wonderful human being. I am very close to him. Please don’t worry. He is fine now, and he will issue a statement again. But please, I fold my hands, don’t speculate,” said Sircar.
Irrfan last month announced on social media that he is suffering from a ‘rare disease’. On February 21, an official spokesperson informed that the actor is diagnosed with a case severe jaundice. In Twitterer post, Irrfan had also urged the media and fans to not speculate anything over his health and assured that he will himself come forward with the truth soon.
Shoojit Sircar was speaking at the trailer launch of Varun Dhawan starrer ‘October’.
