SNS | New Delhi |

After Irrfan Khan recently shared that he has been diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Tumour, director Vishal Bhardwaj has tweeted that he is rescheduling the shoot of the film.

His tweet reads, “Irrfan is a warrior and we know he will conquer this battle. Therefore, Deepika Padukone, Prernaa Arora (co-producer) and I have decided to reschedule our film and start with renewed energy and celebration when our warrior returns as a winner.”

Earlier, Vishal has postponed the film after Irrfan was believed to be suffering from jaundice and Deepika had a severe backache. “I am pushing back the film by a few months as both of my lead actors are down with different health problems. Irrfan is down with jaundice and it will take him a few weeks to recover and Deepika Padukone’s back problem which had previously developed during the shooting of Padmaavat has now resurfaced. Her role in the film is very physically demanding and the doctor has advised her not to do any strenuous work for a couple of months,” the director had written then.

Irrfan’s upcoming movie Blackmail, which also features Kirti Kulhari and Divya Dutta in significant roles. Blackmail will hit the big screen on April 6, 2018.
