In a recent conversation with Bollywood Bubble, Sutapa shared how she is coping with the emptiness of Irrfan’s death. Sikdar said: “When we got to know it, there were no symptoms and he had to leave for his shoot. There was a slight uneasiness in his stomach and they had some tests done. They asked for more tests.” She continued, “So it all happened within 15 days. And in 15 days we came to know that it is advanced stage neuroendocrine cancer.” Later, Sutapa added that she wants to protect herself: “Every night I still have the whole suitcase, and I can’t let those medical records go. Every night … I read them over and over, thinking, ‘Have I did something wrong?’.”
