Earlier in March, the reports of Salman Khan’s Veergati co-star Pooja Dadwal’s deadly tuberculosis caught the attention of people on the social media. Thankfully, the news reached out to the superstar who in turn took the matter into his own hands and helped his friend recovered from the life-threatening disease. According to the recent report, Dadwal has been cured of TB and has been discharged from the Sewri TV hospital on Tuesday.
Pooja Dadwal was admitted to the hospital in March this year suffering from acute tuberculosis. Many media organizations highlighted the plight of Salman Khan’s co-star from Veergati and also made people aware about her unstable financial conditions. Her friends and family had abandoned her while she was struggling to get a good treatment for herself.
However, thanks to Salman Khan that the actress is now hale and hearty. Pooja Dadwal thanked her friend while talking to a media outlet. She said, “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. 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.”
Doctors have advised Pooja to continue her medication for at least one month. The doctors also mentioned that her health condition improved only due to the multi-vitamins and protein supplements that were regularly provided to her by the Being Human Foundation, which is founded by Salman Khan.
