Almost a month after Irrfan Khan had revealed in a tweet that he is suffering from neuroendocrine tumour, his spokesperson has requested people to refrain from spreading unnecessary rumours.
Dismissing recent reports of the actor’s ill-health which stated that Khan is suffering from last- stage cancer and that doctors have said that he only has a month to live, Irrfan’s rep has requested fans and media to refrain from treating ‘social media status’ as health updates.
In the latest statement, Irrfan’s spokesperson said, “This latest round of news being spread through social media in the last few days about Irrfan’s health is absolutely false and there’s no truth to it whatsoever. We as his family and friends again request the members of the media to continue their support and the prayers that have come Irrfan’s way.”
“However, it’s not right to spread rumours through mediums of social media without fact check or any official validation. In the meanwhile once again we request everyone to refrain from picking up social media statuses as affirmative developments on someone’s health,” he added.
Irrfan Khan has been diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumour and is undergoing treatment for the rare disease in the UK.
On a positive note, Irrfan Khan-Saba Qamar starrer Hindi Medium has crossed the 150-crore mark in China becoming the highest-grossing Bollywood film there.
