Irrfan has been diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumor recently. The actor took his Twitter handle to share the news and promised us to keep us updated. It seems that he is keeping up his words by sharing a silhouette photo on Instagram along with some philosophical thoughts. Currently, he is in London for the further treatment. He captioned the photo with the famous poem of Rainer Maria Rilke.
The poem reads as follows;
“God speaks to each of us as he makes us,
then walks with us silently out of the night.
These are the words we dimly hear:
You, sent out beyond your recall,
go to the limits of your longing.
Flare up like a flame
and make big shadows I can move in.
Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror.
Just keep going. No feeling is final.”
Though there were many speculations regarding the ‘rare disease’ of Irrfan, he himself declared about its nature on an elaborate post on Twitter. “Life is under no obligation to give us what we expect: Margaret Mitchell. The unexpected makes us grow, which is what the past few days have been about. Learning that I have been diagnosed with NeuroEndocrine Tumour as of now has now has admittedly been difficult, but the love and strength of those around me and that I found within me has brought me to a place of hope. The journey of this is taking me out of the country, and I request everyone to continue sending their wishes. As for the rumours that were floated NEURO is not always about the brain and googling is the easiest way to do research To those who waited for my words, I hope to be back with more stories to tell.”
We want speedy recovery of this brilliant actor. Irrfan’s latest movie Blackmail is slated to be released on 7th April. Vishal Bhardwaj is also planning for a movie with Irrfan and Deepika Padukone on gangster Sapna Didi.
