MUMBAI: Irrfan Khan is currently in London undergoing treatment for neuroendocrine tumour. Irrfan Khan was diagnosed with the life-threatening disease in March this year. Earlier, there were rumours doing rounds that Irrfan will be returning to India post-Diwali this year. However, a report in a leading daily now claims that he will be celebrating Diwali this year in India. As per the reports, Irrfan will be celebrating Diwali with his family at his Nashik farmhouse.
“Irrfan and his family are planning to celebrate Diwali at their Nashik farmhouse. It will be a 10-day trip after which he will return to the UK for his ongoing treatment,” a source close to the family told the tabloid.
The source further added, “He is yet to be given a clean chit by his doctors on whether he can start full-fledged work. The doctors are hopeful that he can return to the set by March. But he will have to follow the guidelines that his oncologists give him. The biopic will have to be divided into shorter schedules.”
It is said that once he returns to India, Irrfan will begin shooting for Hindi Medium 2 which reportedly also stars Sara Ali Khan.
