His strength and courage have helped him battle and fight so far and we are sure with his tremendous willpower and prayers of all his well-wishers, he will recover soon,” A hospital staff has been quoted as saying
The 53-year-old actor’s mother Saeeda Begum died at the age of 95 on Saturday. Due to the lockdown condition, Irrfan failed to visit his mother’s funeral in Jaipur but he was on a video call, as per reports.
Actor had suffered neuroendocrine tumour in 2018 and underwent treatment in London for almost a year. He returned back India in February 2019 and completed his film Angrezi Medium. He again flew back to London for a surgery in September last year.
Angrezi Medium was released on Hotstar Disney as theatres are closed due to COVID 19 pandemic. Film starred Irrfan Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Radhika Madan in lead roles.
