Irrfan Khan was diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumour and left for his treatment in London in March 2018. And after undergoing treatment, the actor is making a comeback to the movies with the film Angrezi Medium, also starring Radhika Madan, Deepak Dobriyal and Kareena Kapoor Khan in the lead roles. 

Irrfan had shot for the film immediately after undergoing treatment for cancer. Opening up about his battle against cancer, he told Mumbai Mirror, 

It’s been a roller-coaster ride, a memorable one. Happy moments were underlined because of the inherent uncertainty. We cried a little and laughed a lot. We became one huge body. You screen out noises …You are selective about what you want to filter in. I have gone through tremendous anxiety but have somehow managed to control it, then, let go. You are playing hopscotch all the time.


The actor also talks about how he made the most of his time by spending some quality time with his sons and wife Sutapa Deb. The couple tied the knot on 23 February 1995, and have two sons, Babil and Ayan together.

Talking about his sons and wife, Irrfan says, 

And the best part is that I have had all the time literally to see them evolve. A crucial time for a teenager, like the younger one. The older one isn’t a teenager anymore. What to say about Sutapa (wife)? She is there 24/7. She has evolved in care-giving and if I get to live, I want to live for her. She is the reason for me to keep at it still.


Irrfan has got back to his treatment and is not a part of the promotions of his upcoming film Angrezi Medium. In an emotional note, Irrfan had said in a video message, “This film Angrezi Medium is very special for me. I so truly wanted to promote this film with the same love with which we have made it. But there are some unwanted guests in my body... Whatever happens, I will share it with you all...And with this positivity, we made this film. I hope it will give you something and make you laugh, cry and probably laugh again. Enjoy the trailer and be kind to each other and watch the film. And yes, wait for me.”
