Bachchan tweeted: "The start of another mission - the awareness for Hepatitis B... meeting authorities to take this forward - like Polio and TB."

The Health Ministry already launched "TB Harega, Desh Jeetega", a major nationwide campaign featuring Bachchan.

The Bollywood megastar has been associated with UNICEF as a Global Ambassador for eradication of polio virus since 2005. His active campaigning for the cause, coupled with other factors, helped India to achieve its polio-free status.
