As Irrfan is reportedly being diagnosed in Delhi ight now, his wife Sutapa Sikdar also broke silence and posted her statement on social media. She says the family is humbled to have received such love, and will overcome the difficult time.

Meanwhile, Irrfan’s co-star Kriti Kulhari in the upcoming film ‘Blackmail’, has broken silence too.

“I was numb… Not by hearing the news because it was all rumour, but thinking about how can some people be so insensitive. The same thing happened after the demise of Srideviji. I think media should be little more responsible because it has a huge power,” she told IANS.

“Media is one of the key collaborators with people like us (actors) and we always give media THE right information. Speculations and tampering of facts are really immature, and in these kinds of situation, insensitive. As we all know that power comes with great responsibility, media should practice it accordingly,” The ‘PINK’ actress added.

Hope everyone is taking a note!
