Fans of Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan have a reason to cheer this Diwali. The actor, who is currently undergoing treatment for neuroendocrine tumour in London, is likely to return to India for Diwali.
It will be his first trip home after he was diagnosed with the disease.
“Irrfan and his family are planning to celebrate Diwali at their Nashik farmhouse. It will be a 10-day trip after which he will return to the UK for his ongoing treatment,” Mid-day quoted a source saying.
However, Khan will not be involved in any film shooting during his trip.
“He is yet to be given a clean chit by his doctors on whether he can start full-fledged work. The doctors are hopeful that he can return to the set by March. But he will have to follow the guidelines that his oncologists give him. The biopic will have to be divided into shorter schedules,” source added.
