Bollywood renowned actor Irrfan Khan has been diagnosed with a tumour and is travelling overseas for treatment.
The 51-year-old actor took to Twitter and said that it has been difficult dealing with the disease but people around him have given him hope and support to fight it.
“The unexpected makes us grow, which is what the past few days have been about. Learning that I have been diagnosed with NeuroEndocrine Tumour as of now has admittedly been difficult, but the love and strength of those around me and that I found within me has brought me to a place of hope,” Irrfan tweeted.
“The journey of this is taking me out of the country and I request everyone to continue sending their wishes,” he added.

The actor also clarified in the post that contrary to the rumours that were floating around, ‘NEURO’ is not always about the brain and that googling is not always the easiest way to research.
“To those who waited for my words, I hope to be back with more stories to tell,” Irrfan said.
