His official spokesperson released an official statement on the same that reads “Yes, it is true that Irrfan khan is admitted to ICU at Kokilaben in Mumbai because of a colon infection. We would keep everyone updated. He is under doctor’s observation. 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.”
The 53-year-old actor’s condition seems to be serious as he has been admitted to the hospital’s ICU, and his wife Sutapa Sikdar and two sons are with him currently.
The actor has been previously ailing ever since he was diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumor, and has been under medical observation for the same.
Irrfan has already gone through the loss of his mother. The actor’s mother Saeeda Begum passed away on Saturday in Jaipur where she used to recite. However, due to the ongoing lockdown, the actor could not attend his mother’s last rites and reportedly paid his last respect through video conferencing.
