Irrfan Khan’s spokesperson dismisses reports of actor’s worsening health What's Happening Now!

Condemning reports of his worsening health, Irrfan Khan’s representative has requested media and fans to abstain from treating ‘social media status’ as health updates. The Hindi Medium star has been diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumour and is undergoing treatment for the rare disease in the UK.

In the latest statement, Irrfan’s spokesperson said, “This latest round of news being spread through social media in the last few days about Irrfan’s health is absolutely false and there’s no truth to it whatsoever. We as his family and friends again request the members of the media to continue their support and the prayers that have come Irrfan’s way. However it’s not right to spread rumours through mediums of social media without fact check or any official validation. In the meanwhile once again we request everyone to refrain from picking up social media statuses as affirmative developments on someone’s health.”

Lately, online reports claimed that Irrfan’s health was ‘consistently deteriorating’. Citing family sources, journalist Umair Sandhu had tweeted that Irrfan’s cancer was in its final stage. This statement appears to be in response to the tweet and succeeding reports that followed it.
