Ailing actor Irrfan Khan’s wife says her partner is facing his health scare like a warrior.

Days after Khan revealed that his life had been jolted by a rare disease, producer Sutapa Sikdar took to Facebook to share her thoughts.

“My best friend and my partner is a ‘warrior’. He is fighting every obstacle with tremendous grace and beauty... I want all of you to know I am truly humbled, indebted forever for the wishes prayers and concern from all over the world,” Sikdar wrote.

“I’m grateful to God and my partner for making me a warrior too. I am at present focused in the strategies of the battlefield which I have to conquer. It wasn’t and isn’t and is not going to be easy but the hope ignited by the magnitude of family, friends and fans of Irrfan has made me only optimistic and almost sure of the victory,” she added.

Various media reports have been speculating over the medical condition that has struck Khan.

Sutapa said: “I know curiosity germinates from concern but let us turn our curiosity from what it is to what it should be. Let us change the leaf. Let us not waste our precious energies to only know what it is and just pray to make it what it should be.

“My humble request to all of you is to concentrate on the song of life, to dance of life to victory. My family will soon join in this dance of life.”

Khan, in an earlier statement, said he will reveal his illness himself when there’s a “conclusive diagnosis”.
