A week ago, Irrfan Khan revealed that he had been diagnosed with a rare disease. However, the actor refused to delve into details, suggesting that he will reveal more only after thorough examination. This led to a major frenzy on social media, with theories emerging on the possible disease the actor may be suffering from. 

However, his wife and writer, Sutapa Sikdar, put up a post on her Facebook page suggesting that despite the difficulty, the family continues to fight its way through the 'battlefield.' 

Sikdar wrote: '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,' she added. 

The post also had a piece of advice for fans trying to spin theories and investigating into the actor's disease. Sikdar wrote, 'I know curiosity germinates from concern but lets turn our curiosity from what it is to what it should be. Let's 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.' 

Khan has currently pulled out of shooting for Vishal Bhardwaj's film based on the gangster Sapna Didi. The actor also has Akarsh Khurana's Karwaan which will be released later this year.
