"MY RESPECT AND RESPECTABILITY is not going to be judged by you.”
Amitabh Bachchan has responded to a woman who stated that she has “totally lost respect for him” because he was “advertising” for the hospital where he was receiving treatment for Covid-19.
The woman, named Jhanvi Makhija on Facebook accused the actor of promoting Nanavati Hospital.
Amitabh Bachchan was discharged from the hospital on Sunday, 2 August 2020 while his son Abhishek continues to undergo treatment.
Jhanvi complained about Nanavati Hospital stating that her 80-year-old father was wrongly tested positive for the virus. She wrote:
“My dad was wrongly tested positive at Nanavati … we did the antibodies test at a reputed hospital after he was discharged which shows if u ever had Covid and it showed he never had it.
“He’s 80 years .. was kept in Covid ward where none of the family could see him and discharged with bed sores which led to infection.”
Jhanvi continued to accuse Amitabh Bachchan of false advertising. She said:
“Mr Amitabh its really sad the kind of advertisement you’re doing for a hospital like that who don’t care about human life and only want to make money.
“Sorry but totally lost respect for you.”
Responding to Jhanvi’s comment, the legendary actor wrote:
“Jhanvi ji .. I am truly sorry to learn of what your dear and respected Father had to go through and the subsequent problems he developed.
“I have been in and out of Hospitals from a young age and with medical conditions that have all been extremely severe.
“There is a certain Code of Conduct in the medical profession and I have noticed that the doctors, specialists nurses, management all put the utmost in the care of the patient on hand.”
He continued to say:
“Yes lab tests can go wrong, but there are several other tests and conditions from which the assessment is made of any particular ailment.
“No hospital or doctor in my limited experience has ever not followed a code of conduct, or deliberately done adverse treatments for any commercial gain.
“This I shall humbly disagree with.”
Amitabh further added that he did not advertise for Nanavati Hospital. He said:
“NO .. I do not advertise for the Hospital, I want to thank them for THE care and treatment that I got from Nanavati I shall and have done it for every Hospital that I have been admitted to and SHALL CONTINUE TO DO SO WITH GREAT RESPECT!
“You may have lost respect for me but let me tell you Jhanvi ji, I shall never loose respect for the medical profession and the Doctors of my country.
“And one last thing .. MY RESPECT AND RESPECTABILITY is not going to be judged by you.”
