Was Irrfan Khan spotted watching England vs Pakistan test match at Lord's stadium in London?
A man assumed to be actor Irrfan Khan, who was recently diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumour, was photographed watching a test match at Lord's stadium.
After sharing an official statement on the diagnosis of his illness in March, Piku actor Irrfan Khan left for the UK for treatment. He revealed to his fans that he was suffering from a 'rare disease' called neuroendrocine tumour.

Since his statement, there has been more or less radio silence from his end, until a picture of a man assumed to be Irrfan was revealed. In the image, he was spotted watching a test match at London's Lord's stadium recently. A Pakistani sports journalist, Zainab Abbas, shared his picture on Twitter, claiming it was the actor himself.
The picture has gone viral since and has received relieved reactions from his fans, who are hoping for his return back to India. However, another group of his followers believe that it was not him.
Here's what Twitter had to say about this:
Omg! If this is actually today's image, thank you so much for this! There haven't been any major updates on Irfan Sir's health after that 1 statement before he went for the treatment. Good to seem him finally! Thank you so much for sharing this 😊😊🙏😊

He was sitting in front of me.. A few people came and asked him for a picture but he refused..i think because of his health. He looked really really weak. — Ali Nomi (@Ali_nouman16) May 27, 2018

Beyond the dominant silence from Bollywood, many celebrities are responding to the coronavirus crisis in their own ways: by donating money and oxygen cylinders, by amplifying SOS messages on social media, and by employing damage control after receiving flak for a vacation in the Maldives.
