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.
