Irrfan Khan has been admitted to the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital in Mumbai. According to a leading news portal, the actor's health suddenly deteriorated and he has now been taken to the ICU.
Irrfan lost his mother, Saeeda Begum, earlier this week, and sadly he couldn't attend her funeral, due to the nationwide lockdown. The actor was in Mumbai, but was unwell and unable to see his mother for the last time. He spoke to his family in Jaipur over video call.
His family's spokesperson released a statement which states, "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."
Talking about his health, someone close to Irrfan's family told Navbharat Times that, due to Coronavirus outbreak, the actor's usual treatment was not going on smoothly. Thus, he has been admitted to the hospital for proper medication.
The 54-year-old actor has gone through a rough time after being diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer. Irrfan was away from Bollywood for a couple of years due to his cancer treatment in London. However, the actor took a break from his treatment and finished shooting for his film, Angrezi Medium.
Directed by Homi Adajania, the film also stars Radhika Madan, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Deepak Dobriyal in pivotal roles, and was released just before the lockdown.
