Unwell Irrfan Khan Asks Fans Not to Speculate, But Wait for an Update on his Ill-Health

We all loved watching them in Piku. Their chemistry made us believe in platonic love, and we would definitely love to watch them together again.I am talking about Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan. And, if the reports are to be believed the duo would soon be seen together in Vishal Bhardwaj's next. The movie was supposed to be released in Nepal in the first week of March. The movie is adapted from Hussain Zaidi's book, Mafia Queens of Mumbai.Unwell Irrfan Khan 

However, on February 21, Bhardwaj shared the film has been pushed by few months.

According to Asian Age, the actor was diagnosed with a severe case of jaundice in February and the doctors had advised him complete bed rest. It has been two weeks since then and looks like it is much more than just jaundice. Vishal also went ahead and said: 

“In the past few weeks, I felt like I was back in the days of Maqbool while prepping with them. Deepika and Irrfan’s look tests have come out exceptionally well, nothing like you’ve seen before, and it took me a moment to recognize them when I saw the test photographs. I want both of them to be strong and fit before we start the film.”

Irrfan Khan tweeted today

When Irrfan was first diagnosed with the rare disease, he took to Twitter and asked his fans to not speculate anything and wish the best for him. He will be seen in theatres on April 6, 2018, in Blackmail.We wish the actor a speedy recovery.
