Irrfan shared his feelings on social media stating his heart felt comment on his fans and well-wishers who helped him recover from his severe illness
The veteran actor Irrfan Khan was missing from Bollywood after he was diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumor in last February which is almost a year ago. He finally took to twitter to say to his fans that he is ‘coming back’ and also said ‘thanking you from the bottom of your heart.’
Irrfan is an actor with whom we could connect easily. He has won hearts over the years in his carrier of acting in Bollywood. He is loved by one and all and the industry also went through a sad phase when they came to know about his illness and so did his fans. His friends in Bollywood helped him in every way they could for his treatment. It was also said that Shah Rukh Khan handed over his London house keys to Irrfan so that he could stay there during his treatment days. In the same way he was also supported by his fans morally throughout his hardship days.
In a post in twitter, Irrfan posted recently a heartfelt shought where he has thanked his well-wishers and his fans and that is sure to bring tears to your eyes. It says “Maybe, somewhere in the pursuit of winning, we forget how much it means to be loved. In our vulnerability, we are reminded. As I leave my footprints onto these steps of my life, I want to pause to be grateful for receiving your immense love and support, it soothed me in my process of healing. So I travel back to you, thanking you from the bottom of my heart.”
Last year, he opened about his suffering and said “I had been in a different game, I was travelling on a speedy train ride, had dreams, plans, aspirations, goals, was fully engaged in them. And suddenly someone taps on my shoulder and I turn to see. It’s the TC: ‘Your destination is about to come. Please get down.’ I am confused: ‘No, no. My destination hasn’t come.’ ‘No, this is it. This is how it is sometimes.’ The suddenness made me realise how you are just a cork floating in the ocean with UNPREDICTABLE currents! And you are desperately trying to control it. That was my INTENTION. AND THEN PAIN HIT. As if all this while, you were just getting to know pain, and now you know his nature and his intensity. Nothing was working; NO consolation, no motivation. The entire cosmos becomes one at that moment just PAIN, and pain felt more enormous than GOD,” said the actor.
“For the first time, I felt what ‘freedom’ truly means. It felt like an accomplishment. As if I was tasting life for the first time, the magical side of it. My confidence in the intelligence of the cosmos became absolute. I feel as if it has entered every cell of mine. Time will tell if it stays, but that is how I feel as of now. A realisation that the cork doesn’t need to control the current. That you are being gently rocked in the cradle of nature,” Irrfan said.
