Irrfan Khan, who has been undergoing treatment for neuroendocrine tumour in the UK, has come back to India. As per the reports of Mid-Day, the Piku actor has returned home, not for the shooting of the film but to celebrate Diwali with his family. A source revealed to the tabloid, “Irrfan and his family are planning to celebrate Diwali at their Nashik farmhouse. It will be a 10-day trip after which he will return to the UK for his ongoing treatment.”

A source further quoted, “He is yet to be given a clean chit by his doctors on whether he can start full-fledged work. The doctors are hopeful that he can return to the set by March. But he will have to follow the guidelines that his oncologists give him. The biopic will have to be divided into shorter schedules.”

Meanwhile, Irrfan Khan already has three films lined up which include Hindi Medium 2, Shoojit Sircar’s Udham Singh biopic and Vishal Bharadwaj’s untitled film opposite Deepika Padukone.
