Irrfan’s wife Sutapa Sikdar posts emotional message about his illness

Irfan Khan’s wife Sutapa Sikdar took to social media to post about her husband’s illness. In a post dated March 9, the National School of Drama graduate urged Irrfan’s fans and well-wishers to be patient and not spend time and energy speculating on the actor’s condition.


She wrote, “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.”

On March 5, the ‘Qarib Qarib Singlle’ and ‘Hindi Medium’ star announced on social media that he was diagnosed with a ‘rare disease’. Even though the actor had urged fans and media to ‘not speculate’, TV channels and other media had continued to focus on the actor’s medical condition. Addressing the issue, Sutapa mentioned in her post, “I know curiosity germinates from concern but let’s turn our curiosity from what it is to what it should be. Let’s change the leaf.” Irrfan’s wife is clearly talking about the curiosity around his illness and this is again, a subtle request to fans and supporters to not speculate about his condition. In his own post, Irrfan had promised to reveal details of his medical problem soon. Irrfan had stated, “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.”
Sutapa’s post acknowledged the growing curiosity and the wishes pouring in from all corners. She also maintained a stoic but graceful stance towards the situation. In the post where she referred to Irrfan as a ‘warrior’ and ‘best friend’, she said, “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.”
