Irrfan Khan’s wife, Sutapa Sikdar, has penned an emotional letter on Facebook, calling her husband a true warrior who has given her immense strength.
Early this month, Khan had tweeted that he was suffering from a “rare disease,” but did not divulge the details of his illness. Since then, multiple rumours have been doing the rounds, with some even claiming that he was suffering from brain tumour.
Now the actor’s wife, who is a producer and writer, has opened up about the family’s struggles and called Khan her best friend and partner.
Read Sikdar’s full post below:
My best friend and my partner is a ‘warrior’ he is fighting every obstacle with tremendous grace and beauty. I apologize for not answering calls msgs,but I want all of you to know I am truly humbled indebted for ever for the wishes prayers and concern from all over the world.
I am grateful to god and my partner for making me a warrior too. I am at present focused in the strategies of the battlefield which I have to conquer.
It wasn’t and isn’t and is not going to be easy but the hope ignited by the magnitude of family ,friends and fans of irrfan has made me only optimistic and almost sure of the victory.
I know curiosity germinates from concern but lets turn our curiosity from what it is to what it should be. Lets change the leaf.
Lets not waste our precious energies to only know what it is and just prey to make it what it should be.
My humble request to all of you is to concentrate on the song of life, to dance of life to victory.
My family will soon join in this dance of life.
Thank you all from bottom of our heart.
Khan’s friends in Bollywood, including Sonam Kapoor and Nimrat Kaur, have been urging fans to stop spreading rumours regarding the actor’s health.
