Sikdar says about him, “He was always focused, I remember when he came home, he would go straight to the bedroom, sit on the floor and read books. trailed in gossip. ” Even now, while reading at least one new Hollywood script per week, he believes it’s good to do homework, stay up until 3 am, take notes and try to understand how to play his character. Sikdar remembers how he would require up to 11 rewrites from him when he made episodes of Banegi Apni Baat. “Once, he dragged me to a police station in Mumbai to understand the procedure,” she recalls. In 2012, he changed the spelling of his name from “Irfan” to “Irrfan” and said he liked the sound of the extra “r” in his name.

After much speculation, the actor went to his Twitter account and announced that he would “share his story” in “a week – ten days” and asked the media and fans not to “speculate” anything. On March 16, 2018, Khan announced via Twitter message that he was suffering from a neuroendocrine tumor. He went to London for treatment.
