I think we should respect him and say a little prayer: Deepika on Irrfan’s health

The Bollywood queen Deepika Padukone spoke honestly about her co-star Irrfan Khan’s health recently at an awards night. She had worked with Irrfan in Shoojit Sircar’s ‘Piku’, and will be reuniting on screen in Vishal Bhardwaj’s next crime thriller. The 32-year-old actress urged everyone to pray for the ace actor.

“His health is not the best at this point, and it is important that we pray for him, and everyone else. Nothing is more important than peace of mind and health. The last couple of weeks have been emotionally challenging,” the 32-years-old star said. While talking about Irrfan, Deepika also added that she loves him as a person and as an actor. “He is someone I absolutely love as a person and an actor. Piku will be one of my all-time favourite films and Irrfan has a large part to play in that. Honestly, I do not know where he is. I do not know what has happened to him. Like he has requested, there are times when people need to be left alone for some time and figure their lives out. I think we should respect him, hope for the best and say a little prayer,” the ‘Padmaavat’ actor said.

The top-class actor Irrfan recently revealed that he is unwell and suffering from a “rare” disease and would share it as soon as his diagnosis in sure. Khan’s ‘Blackmail’ co-star Kirti Kulhari had also expressed her thoughts on the health of the actor. “I wouldn’t want to be pestering him or his team for anything, for an update. He has made it very clear to everybody that he needs some time, some space. It’s sad that people are not doing that. But I’m really hoping and praying that we hear some good news from him soon,” Kirti said.
