Megastar Amitabh Bachchan who was tested positive for COVID-19 recently was admitted to the hospital in Mumbai. On August 2, he tested negative for the deadly virus and got discharged from the hospital.
Big B updated about the same on the social media and wrote, “This morning I have tested COVID negative and have been discharged from Hospital. I am back home. I will have to be in solitary quarantine in my room. The grace of the Almighty, the blessings of Ma Babuji, the prayers and duas of near and dear and friends and fans & EF.. and the excellent care and nursing at Nanavati has made it possible for me to see this day. With folded hands I express my gratitude.”
After this post, a social media user criticized Big B for allegedly advertising for the hospital. She complained about the same hospital and mentioned how her 80-year-old father was wrongly tested positive for COVID-19 and suffered bed sores which led to infection. A part of her comment read, “Mr. Amitabh, it’s really sad the kind of advertisement you’re doing for a hospital like that who don’t care about human life and only want to make money… Sorry but totally lost respect for you.”
Replying to this, Big B wrote, “Jhanvi ji… I am truly sorry to learn of what your dear and respected Father had to go through and the subsequent problems he developed. I have been in and out of Hospitals from a young age and with medical conditions that have all been extremely severe. There is a certain Code of Conduct in the medical profession and I have noticed that the doctors, specialists, nurses, management, all put the utmost in the care of the patient on hand.”
Further adding to this, he wrote, “NO.. I do not advertise for the Hospital, I want to thank them for THE care and treatment that I got from Nanavati I shall and have done it for every hospital that I have been admitted to and SHALL CONTINUE TO DO SO WITH GREAT RESPECT! You may have lost respect for me but let me tell you Jhanvi ji, I shall never lose respect for the medical profession and the Doctors of my country. And one last thing.. MY RESPECT AND RESPECTABILITY is not going to be judged by you.”
Meanwhile, Abhishek Bahchan is again tested positive for COVID-19 and is currently hospitalized.
