Megastar Amitabh Bachchan attended NDTV’s Swasth India launch where he revealed that for eight years, he did not know he was suffering from tuberculosis. He said that he does not mind calling himself a tuberculosis survivor. At the event, he was asking Dr. Harsh Vardhan to spread awareness about regular check-ups that help in early diagnosis.

As reported by news agency ANI, Big B said, “I keep quoting my personal example all the time and try and propagate the idea of getting yourself detected. I don’t mind saying this publicly that I am a tuberculosis survivor, Hepatitis B survivor. Bad blood infusion went in and 75 percent of my liver is gone. I was able to detect it even after a period of 20 years when 75 percent of my liver is gone. I am still surviving on 25 percent.”

Talking about tuberculosis, the actor said that there is a cure. “I did not know that for almost 8 years, I was suffering from tuberculosis. I keep saying with immodesty that if it can happen to me, it can happen to anyone. Therefore, if you are not willing to get yourself tested then you would never find out and there’s never going to be a cure for it,” added Mr. Bachchan.

A few years back, at a press conference of a media campaign on Hepatitis B, he said that he got the virus after his accident while shooting the film ‘Coolie’. During his treatment, he received 60 bottles of blood from 200 donors.
