The 74-year-old thespian, who is a survivor of tuberculosis, added, “Incomplete treatment leads to TB becoming Drug-Resistant.”

He even urged his fans and followers not to leave the treatment mid-way. “TB itni badi bimari nahi jo pakad mein na aa sakey (It is not such a big disease that it cannot be diagnosed and cured). Join India vs TB. Pledge support for TB free India,” he said.

J.P. Nadda, Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare launched #India vs TB, TB- Free India campaign featuring Amitabh, ambassador for TB-Free India.

 The five-part campaign talks about early identification of symptoms, importance of treatment completion, MDR TB and social impact of TB on families and children. The campaign theme #IndiavsTB symbolises India’s fight against TB and ‘TB Harega, Desh Jeetega’.
