In 2018, he was diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumour, a rare form of cancer that can target various parts of the body. ‘I trust, I have surrendered,’ were the words with which his family confirmed his death, while adding, “ These were the some of the many words that Irrfan expressed in a heart felt note he wrote in 2018 opening up about his fight with cancer.
