Amitabh Bachchan made a shocking, revealing about his disease, he is a victim of hepatitis B, a chronic liver disease, for the last 20 years. At the launch of a media campaign on Hepatitis, Big B said that he has lost 75% of his liver to the deadly Hepatitis virus and now surviving on only 25% of his liver today. Once he had been injected 60 bottles of blood from around 200 donors. Probably one of them was carrying this virus.
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 earlier, and it was still very new. One of my blood donors carried the Hepatitis B virus, which went into my system. I continued to function normally till 2000, and almost 18 years after the accident, during a very normal medical checkup, I was told my liver was infected and I had lost 75% of it. So, if I am standing here today, you are looking at a person who is surviving with 25% of his liver,”
