The spokesperson, however, said that Irrfan may return to the country after Diwali.

"The story floating about Irrfan starting Hindi Medium 2 shoot in December are all based on speculations. However, there is a possibility of him returning to India after Diwali," the spokesperson said in a statement.

A report in an online portal had claimed the actor will be flying to India to shoot for the sequel of his 2017 hit.

Irrfan first spoke of his health on 5 March, when he revealed that he was suffering from a 'rare disease'. He later revealed that he has been diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumour, a rare disease that can target various parts of the body.
