New Delhi: Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan is in London for treatment of his neuroendocrine tumour. He was dearly missed by his fans during the promotion of his film ‘Karwaan’ with Dulquer Salman and Mithila Palkar.

In a recent interview with AP, Irrfan Khan has opened up about his health update. Talking to the AP reporter, Piku actor said, “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.”

Irrfan Khan further said, “There’s no guarantee of life with anybody. My mind could always tell me to hang a kind of chip on your neck and say, “I have this disease and I could die in a few months or a year or two.” Or I could just avoid this conversation completely and live my life the way it offers me. And it offers so much. I admit I was walking around with blinders. I couldn’t see what it offered me. You stop your contemplation, you stop your planning, you stop the noise. You see the other aspect of it. It gives you so much. Life offers you so much. That’s why I feel like I have no other words but thanks. There are no other words, there’s no other demand, there’s no other prayer.”

Irrfan wanted his fans to know that they should not feel sad but believe the end result will be good. He said, “The problem with me initially was everyone was speculating whether I would be out of this disease or not. Because it’s not in my hand. That’s nature that will do whatever it has to do. What is in my hand, I could take care of that. And it offers so much that you feel thankful. The way it is opening your windows to look at life. I would have never reached that state even if I had done meditation for 30 years, I wouldn’t have reached it. But this sudden jolt has put me into a platform where I could look at things in a completely different manner. And for that I am really thankful. It sounds strange, but they should trust nature rather than feel sad, and trust that whatever the outcome, it will be for good and it will be for the best.”

Earlier Irrfan Khan posted a picture of himself where it was evident that actor has lost weight but was fighting the disease with a smile.
