"It (the news) makes me sad. The first came out when we were supposed to meet at the trailer launch. I didn't take that very seriously. I thought ok, he must be unwell. But I'm saddened by it. I honestly don't know the details and I wouldn't want to speculate," Kulhari told

She said so far she has stayed away from getting in touch with Khan directly as she wants to give him his space.

"I wouldn't want to be pestering him or his team for anything, for an update. He has made it very clear to everybody that he needs some time, some space. It's sad that people are not doing that. But I'm really hoping and praying that we hear some good from him soon," she says.

On February 21, the actor's had released a statement, saying he had been diagnosed with a "severe case of jaundice".
