Post their stint in ‘Piku’, Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan were all set to the work together in Vishal Bharadwaj’s ‘Sapna Didi’, however owing to the Khan’s ailing health, the project was put on a back burner. While Irrfan is still undergoing his treatment for cancer overseas, the leading lady of his film gave the latest update of the actor.

During an interaction with The New Indian Express, Deepika said, “Forget the actor part, for me, Irrfan is someone I’m extremely fond of as a person. 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. Anything can happen to anyone. Nothing shocks or alarms me anymore, but I do wish him good health and a speedy recovery.”

Earlier in an interview with News 18, the actress had commented on Irrfan’s health saying, “He is someone I love, he is someone I am extremely fond of and to be honest I think it has also been very hard not reaching out because they have asked for their space. But I guess, you know sitting where I am all I can say is a little prayer every night and hope that you know that all goes well. But at the same time like I said you know three years ago I realised life is extremely fragile, so my whole perspective to life changed after my experience with depression.”

Just like Deepika, we too wish Irrfan, a speedy recovery!
