Irrfan first spoke of his health on March 5, when he revealed that he was suffering from a ‘rare disease’. He later revealed that he has been diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumour, a rare disease that can target various parts of the body.

In June, Irrfan penned a heartfelt letter about how life-changing the disease has been for him, and how it has made him realise “how you are just a cork floating in the ocean with unpredictable currents”.
