Amitabh Bachchan says right detection and right treatment is crucial for Hepatitis B, so one could lead a normal life, during a special charity event here in Mumbai.
“It was discovered that the virus is within my body and it has eaten away 75% of my liver. Today, as I stand here in front you, my liver is only 25% functional, 75% of my liver is damaged due to Hepatitis B. What I was trying to say that if I am standing here in front you, because the right detection took place, followed by right kind of treatment, and I am living my life like a normal person” said Amitabh Bachchan on the sidelines of Anand Pandit’s special charity event.
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan distributed hearing aid kits among some hearing impaired persons at a charity function he attended on Sunday evening. Organised by the Yuvak Pratishthan Trust (YPT) and well-known Hindi film producer Anand Pandit, the initiative attempted to provide hearing aids to those who can’t afford them.
The event was graced by Bachchan along with Pandit and Bharatiya Janata Party MP Kirit Somaiya, who runs the YPT.
Recalling one of his earlier accidents, Bachchan said: “Years ago, on a Diwali night, a bursting firecracker burnt my left hand. For months, I was unable to lead a normal life. I was unable to do the basic things in daily life like wearing clothes. Thankfully now, my hand is fine and I am leading a normal life, but those few months of my life made me understand how it feels if you do not have a part of your body. It is miserable.”
The superstar then expressed the wish to help physically challenged people. “I would like to congratulate Kirit and Anand for their work that made so much difference in some of the people’s life. I am ready to contribute in my own way, if anything you need, my presence, my effort, and feel free to ask.”
Big B praised the almighty for giving him his body back after the incident and praised Anand Pandit and BJP MP Kirit Somaiya, present at the event for their noble cause and support for the needy.
“The help Anand Bhai and Kirit, you are providing so that their body become functional once again is commendable. I would like to congratulate you two gentlemen and this institute for doing commendable job”
