Remember how Salman Khan’s former co-star Pooja Dadwal from Veergati was diagnosed with Tuberculosis in March this year? When Salman was asked about her health, he said that she’d be fine and didn’t have to worry about anything. And only Salman keeps his word in Bollywood, it seems! The actress is fine and in a much more stable condition.
In an interview recently, she spoke about her deteriorating health and how Salman helped her, “I can’t describe how I am feeling. When I was hospitalised on March 2, I thought I was going to die there – bedridden in a corner of that depressing ward. My family and friends had abandoned me. I gave up all hope after the doctors told me that my lungs were severely affected. Incessant coughing and breathlessness had left me weak. And I saw so many like me, dying all alone – their friends and family, like mine, had deserted them. But then I decided that I don’t want to end up like that. I decided to fight, to not let the disease win.”
She also added, “Yes, one of the side-effects of tuberculosis is social rejection but I am really thankful to Salman Khan who lent me the support. From clothes to soaps, diapers, food, medicines, his foundation took care of everything. If I survived the ordeal, it is only because of him.”
That’s some great news!
