Irrfan Khan, who is undergoing treatment in London for his neuroendocrine tumour, made a brief appearance on social media on Sunday by posting a smiling photograph. Within hours, the photograph went viral.

The actor took to Twitter on Sunday to change the display picture. He looks happy in the photograph, though appears slightly weak. The viral photograph shows him in a yellow T-shirt through a glass window with earphones around his neck and a big smile on his face.

Meanwhile, Irrfan Khan has been using Twitter of late to promote his forthcoming film Karwaan, which also features South star Dulquer Salmaan and Mithila Palkar.

In March, Irrfan Khan had announced his health condition on social media. “Learning that I have been diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumour as of now has admittedly been difficult… I hope to be back with more stories to tell,” read his statement posted on Twitter.

Last month, Irrfan Khan won the IIFA for Best Actor for the role in Hindi Medium. The trophy was handed over to the team on his behalf. However, he thanked IIFA on Twitter and wrote, “Thank you to IIFA and our audience who have been part for my journey.”

In June, in an interview to Bombay Times, Irrfan spoke about the “terrifying hospital visits”. Here is the post.

On the work front, Karwaan is all set to hit the theatres on August 3, 2018.
