He was diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumour and was in London for the treatment. He returned Mumbai this week and the paparazzi got hold of it.
He also took to twitter to thank his followers and well wishers. He wrote, “Maybe somewhere in the pursuit of winning, we forget how much it means to be loved. In our vulnerability, we are reminded. As I leave my footprints onto these steps of my life, I want to pause to be grateful for receiving your immense love and support, it soothed me in my process of healing. So I travel back to you, thanking you from the bottom of my heart,”
