‘Mehndi’ fame actor Faraaz Khan breathed his last on November 4. The actor was diagnosed with brain infection and pneumonia and has was admitted in a Bengaluru hospital.
Faraaz’s younger brother Fahmaan Khan has finally spoken about his demise. Fahmaan shared how the family is still trying to come to the terms with Faraaz’s death and how they all are trying to deal with the pain.
Post his elder brother’s death in Bengaluru, Fahmaan has returned to Mumbai for his shoot commitments. Speaking about his brother’s demise, Fahmaan told SpotBoyE, “The whole family is obviously very disturbed with this and it’s not going to be easy. Honestly, coming back from home and shooting the same day is the most difficult thing I have done in my lifetime. I reached Mumbai this morning and directly headed to the set for my shoot at 2. It’s a process which we have to go through and it is surely not going to be easy. My parents and other family members are there in Bangalore dealing with the pain of losing him.”
Further sharing about the illness Faraaz was battling for around a year, Fahmaan told the portal, “To be honest his illness was as rare as he was. The doctors tried everything possible. It was not a very deadly virus as such in terms if we bifurcate with another virus. The entire process of it developing to something else together brought into demise. The doctor explained to us that the bacteria which he had in his body had developed the kind of bacteria which sat whenever the antibiotics were given to him. The immunity of the human body should be close to 700 minimum but his immunity had come down to 23.9 and that was the last meter of the machine that it can show. So, his body was not fighting with any of the antibiotics. And this was all going through from quite some time. I don’t remember the exact medical term of it but his brain had got some virus due to which a lot of issues happened to him. And then his body eventually gave up.”
Fahmaan also shared a heartfelt post for his elder brother after his demise. Sharing a major throwback picture with Faraaz, Fahmaan wrote, “whatever I say, it wouldn’t do justice to the man you were ave. But I am going to try. You weren’t made for this world ave. you were made to live in a world full of love and only happy positive people. your intelligence was way beyond mediocre understanding. your words stuck with everyone for eternity. your honesty pierced through every metal. To me, you were the first inspiration in my life, you showed me how to be a star that people loved, your legacy will be taken forward. you lived and went on your own terms.. you helped me believe in my dreams. Thank You ave for being the best big brother anyone could ever ask for. with a heavy heart I will let you go but in that heart you will always stay and guide me..i love you..(sic)”
