Irrfan Khan, suffering from health issues has put many Bollywood projects on hold -- most recent being Vishal Bhardwaj's next directorial with him and Deepika Padukone in lead roles. 

Taking to Twitter on March 19, the filmmaker wrote about rescheduling his next film with the Piku stars, Khan and Padukone. Calling Irrfan a warrior, Bhardwaj wrote: "Pushing back film by a few months, @irrfank down with jaundice and @deepikapadukone with resurfaced back issue caused during Padmaavat. While prepping, was transported to Maqbool days. Stunning look tests, can’t wait to start shoot . Sending pyaar & duaaen to my Ustara and Afshan."

This is what Bhardwaj posted: 


Irrfan Khan and Deepika Padukone were all set to start shooting for the film earlier this month in Nepal.

Khan had earlier posted on Twitter about his rare disease, NeuroEndocrine Tumour for which he is currently out of the country. Read his full statement here. The disease was understood by most as brain cancer but it means completely different. Know more about NeuroEndocrine Tumour here
