He further added “I have had the fourth cycle of chemo. And I have to have six cycles and then we need to have a scan. After the third cycle, the scan was positive. But we need to see after the sixth scan. And then we’ll see where it takes me. There’s no guarantee of life with anybody and it offers so much. I admit I was walking around with blinders. I couldn’t see what it offered me”.
Irrfan further said he has gained “clarity” with this experience. Irrfan admitted that he can’t deny enjoying certain changes in his otherwise planned routine, like waking up and not knowing how the rest of the day will play out. “No, I’m completely out of reading scripts, this has become a surreal experience” he said.
In the meantime, Irrfan Khan’s new film Karwaan releases on 3rd August, which also stars Mithila Palkar and Dulquer Salmaan. Mithila, who is making her Bollywood debut with the movie, told news agency PTI that Irrfan is really being missed during the film’s promotional events. “It was extremely heart-breaking to hear this but all our love and prayers are with him. He is a fighter. Hope we see him very soon,” she added.
