'Life Of Pi' Actor Irrfan Khan, Under Treatment, Tweets

Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan returned to Twitter on Wednesday, two months after he had announced that he was diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumour.

Khan, 51, tweeted about his upcoming film, which is set to release on August 10. He is reportedly undergoing treatment in the UK, according to the BBC.

He has acted in more than 100 films including Hollywood movies, "Life of Pi," "Jurassic World," and "Slumdog Millionaire."

Khan's fans were delighted with his return to the social media platform.

Khan has starred in several popular Bollywood films and many welcomed him back on Twitter with wishes for his speedy recovery.

An endocrine tumour is a rare form of cancer that affects the cells that release hormones into the bloodstream. He had first tweeted on March 5 saying he was suffering from a "rare disease" and later revealed what it was.

He is India's best-known international actor and has also featured in a wide range of well-received roles in Bollywood and independent Hindi films.

In 2013, he won India's National Film Award for his leading role in "Paan Singh Tomar," a biopic about a top athlete who becomes a bandit.
