While Amitabh Bachchan is one of the fittest actors in Bollywood, very few people know that 73-year-old superstar has Hepatitis B which he contracted through blood transfusion. He opened up during an event saying,
“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 the year 2000 and 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 percent of my liver. So, if I am standing here today, you are looking at a person who is surviving with 25 percent of his liver. That is the bad part. The good part is you can survive even with 12 percent. But no one wants to get to that stage.”
This is kind of shocking to us considering how healthy he looks at his age. Kudos to him!
