News flashed on Tuesday that actor Irrfan Khan has been admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of Mumbai’s Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital. He has been admitted because of a colon infection as per old information.
“Yes, it is true that Irrfan khan is admitted to ICU at Kokilaben in Mumbai because of a colon infection. We would keep everyone updated. He is under doctor’s observation. His strength and courage have helped him battle and fight so far and we are sure with his tremendous willpower and prayers of all his well-wishers, he will recover soon,” read the statement issued on behalf of Irrfan by his spokesperson on Tuesday evening.
Today early morning Irrfan Khan passes away in the Mumbai’s Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital.
He had written: “Sometimes you wake up with a jolt with life-shaking you up. In the last fifteen days, my life has been a suspense story. Little had I known that my search for rare stories would make me find a rare disease. I have never given up and have always fought for my choices and always will. My family and friends are with me and we are working it out the best way possible. In trying times, please don’t speculate as I will myself share with you my story within a week – ten days when the further investigations come with a conclusive diagnosis. Till then, wish the best for me.”
Another update later the same night dismissed rumors that the actor was on a ventilator. “It’s really disappointing to know that there are extreme assumptions being made about Irrfan’s health. While we are truly appreciative that people are concerned, it’s disheartening to see some sources spread extreme rumors and creating panic. Irrfan is a strong person and is still fighting the battle. We really request you to not fall for rumors and not partake in these conversations which are fictional. We have always actively clarified and shared updates on his health and we will continue doing so,” said the statement issued by his rep.
As the Irrfan Khan battles for his health, here’s a look at how he has kept his fans and well-wishers in the loop from day one. On March 5, 2018, the world woke up to the news that the talented actor was seriously unwell. In fact, the actor had taken to Twitter and reveal his diagnosis.
