Deepika Padukone has spoken up about her Piku co-star Irrfan Khan, who has been diagnosed with a rare illness and has been missing from action since the last couple of weeks. She is to feature with him in a Vishal Bhardwaj movie.

“I think we should always pray for people and their good health. If his health is not best at this point, I think it is important for all of us to pray, not just for him, but for everyone,” said the actress who was honoured with Entertainer of the Year at the Hello Hall of Fame Awards in Mumbai.

“I think the last couple of weeks have been emotionally challenging, but yes, I think we all should say a little prayer,” she said, adding that she has had some of her most special experiences as an actor with Khan.

“I think like he has requested that there are times when people need to be left alone for sometime and figure their lives out... We should respect the space they have requested for and hope for the best,” she added.

Padukone herself suffered aggravated pain in the neck recently. But she said she is well and there is nothing to worry about.

“All is good on the health front. I got so many wishes from fraternity and media. Things are back to normal and I will be starting my physiotherapy soon. There is nothing to worry about,” she said.
