Actor Irrfan Khan, who was undergoing treatment for neuroendocrine tumour in London, is back in the country.

His arrival in the country has already led to speculation with some claiming that he will start shooting the sequel to "Hindi Medium" from February 22 and some stating that he is being treated at a hospital here.

A source close to the actor confirmed that the globally renowned star is back, but dismissed all other claims.

“Irrfan is back in Mumbai. But people are publishing all sorts of stories without any confirmation. They are not true,” the source said. “I will get an update on his health and when will he be resuming work when I meet the actor soon,” the source added.

Irrfan had announced in a tweet in March 2018 that he has been diagnosed with neuro-endocrine tumour. He further said he’s going abroad for treatment and that “neuro is not always about the brain.”

In an interview with Times of India, he had revealed that he was part of a trial study and the unpredictability of the treatment was high.

It’s been quite some time now since I have been diagnosed with a high-grade neuroendocrine cancer. This new name in my vocabulary, I got to know, was rare, and due to fewer study cases, and less information comparatively, the unpredictability of the treatment was more. I was part of a trial-and-error game.

The source also said that “Hindi Medium 2” will happen, “but not sure when the shooting will start”.

Directed by Saket Chaudhary, the 2017 hit film “Hindi Medium” revolves around a couple who want to give their daughter the best education so that she becomes accepted by the elite in society. It also features Pakistani actress Saba Qamar.

We hope to see Irrfan on the big screen soon!
