Recently, Bachchan opened up about his fight with Hepatitis B that affects his liver, which he acquired after his accident on the sets of Coolie.
Speaking to Hindustan Times, he said, “Hepatitis B came to me accidentally. After my accident on the sets of Coolie, I was infused with the blood of about 200 donors and 60 bottles of blood were injected into my system. The Australian antigen Hepatitis B had only been detected three months ago and it was very new for being detected also among various tests needed to be carried out before giving blood to another patient. One of my blood donors was carrying Hepatitis B virus which went into my system. I continued to function normally till year 2000. Almost 18 years after the accident, during a very normal medical checkup, I was told that my liver was infected and I had lost 75% of my liver. So, if I am standing here today, you are looking at a person who is surviving with 25%of liver. That is the bad part. The good part is you can survive even with 12%. But no one wants to get to that stage.”
Big B is expected to resume shooting for the quiz show, Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC), on Tuesday.
Bachchan will next be seen in the movies Brahmastra and Gulabo Sitabo.
