I am still surviving on 25 percent, said Big B. The 76-year-old star, who has been associated with various health campaigns like Polio, Hepatitis B, Tuberculosis and diabetes, urged people to get tested and diagnosed.

Therefore if you are not willing to get yourself tested then you would never find out and theres never going to be a cure for it, he said.
