Gursimran Khamba, co-founder of AIB also released a statement announcing their joint decision to not cast Irrfan in Gormint.

Khamba wished him a speedy recovery and hoped to collaborate with him in the future.

For now from me and all of us at AIB, all we want is for him to get healthy and healed so we can plan more shenanigans together in the future. I still look forward to excitable 3 am calls from him with terrific random ideas for the show. And with a heavy heart, as we all begin to imagine and work on the show without him, I can only hope that we will still make something worthy of the vision and passion sir showed for it.

Irrfan has collaborated with the AIB team - Rohan Joshi, Gursimran Khamba, Ashish Shakya and Tanmay Bhat - for many YouTube videos.
