Well-known actor Irrfan Khan has mentioned "a rare disease" in a post about his health on micro-blogging site Twitter, but has urged people not to speculate and promised to share details in some days after a conclusive diagnosis.
"Sometimes you wake up with a jolt with life shaking you up. The last fifteen days, my life has been a suspense story. Little had I known that my search for rare stories would make me find a rare disease," Irrfan, 51, said in his post.
"I have never given up and have always fought for my choices and always will," he said.
"My family and friends are with me and we are working it out the best way possible. In trying times, please don't speculate as I will myself share with you my story within a week - ten days, when the further investigations come with a conclusive diagnosis. Till then, wish the best for me!" he added.
On February 21, filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj had said on Twitter that he was pushing  back his film, starring Irrfan Khan and Deepika Padukone.
"Pushing back film by a few months, @irrfank down with jaundice and @deepikapadukone with resurfaced back issue caused during Padmaavat," Bhardwaj had said.
Irrfan Khan's last release was the romantic comedy Qarib Qarib Singlle in which he had co-starred with Malayalam actress Parvathy, who made her Bollywood debut with that film. His next, Blackmail, which also has Kirti Kulhari and Divya Dutta is due for release next month.
