Amitabh Bachchan’s video thanking Nanavati Hospital Doctors
Amitabh was heard saying in the video, “Namashkar, this is Amitabh Bachchan. I want to talk to all the doctors, nurses and the staff at Nanavati hospital, for the tremendous work you’re doing in these very trying circumstances. I had shared a recent post on Twitter, which was from a billboard from Surat. The post read – ‘do you know why the temples are closed? Because God is wearing a white coat and working in hospitals.”
Calling the staff at the hospital God, he added, “All the doctors, nurses and staff from the hospital, you all are like God to someone. You’ll are working so hard for the mankind. You have become the providers of life. I fold my hands and pay my respects to you all. This is very good deed. Without you all, who knows where would mankind go?”
Motivating his fans to stay optimistic, Big B said, “I want to spread this message. I know that these days are a little disappointing. They are trying times and everyone is being worked to their absolute limits. There’s always fear, depression, but please, do not despair or panic. We’re all together in this. We hope and wish that very soon we shall come out of these extranious circumstances.”
He concluded the video with, “Thank you so much Nanavati hospital, all the nurses and doctors, and the people that are working there – the staff at the hospital. I have had a wonderful experience every time I have been to your facility. I know how much your care and love has been important for my health. I hope you keep working like that.”
