Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan who is battling against Neuroendocrine Tumour, tweeted for the first time in over two months on Wednesday evening. Irrfan shared the poster of his upcoming movie Karwaan with a special message for his co-actors Dulquer Salmaan and Mithila Palkar who are making their debut with the film which is being produced by Ronnie Screwvala’s production. “Beginnings have the innocence that experience can’t buy. My best wishes to @dulQuer , @mipalkar for joining the karwaan. ‘Two karwaans ‘ …. Mine and the movie !! @MrAkvarious @RSVPMovies @RonnieScrewvala,” the tweet read.

“The unexpected makes us grow, which is what the past few days have been about. Learning that I have been diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Tumour as of now has admittedly been difficult, but the love and strength of those around me and that I found within me has brought me to a place of hope. The journey of this is taking me out of the country, and I request everyone to continue sending their wishes. As for the rumours that were floated NEURO is not always about the brain and googling is the easiest way to do research 😉 To those who waited for my words, I hope to be back with more stories to tell,” the post read.
