Talking about Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan being diagnosed with cancer, actress Deepika Padukone reacted, “I can’t say it was expected, but neither was it a shock.”
“I myself have been through certain experiences in the past, and it has taught me that life is fragile,” Deepika added.
She further said, “Nothing shocks or alarms me anymore, but I do wish him…a speedy recovery.”
In a Film career spanning almost thirty years and featuring in more than fifty domestic films, Khan has received numerous awards, including a National Film Award and Filmfare Awards in four categories.
Film critics, contemporaries and other experts consider him to be one of the finest actors in Indian cinema for his versatile and natural acting.
In 2011, Khan was awarded the Padma Shri, India’s fourth highest civilian honour for his contribution to the field of arts.
