Amitabh launches two health projects in Kochi
Says Mumbai's health is fine
Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who arrived on a visit to Kochi on Feb 7, said Mumbai, where he has lived for over four decades, is "fine" and healthy.
"Mumbai's health is fine," Bachchan replied at a function in Kochi when reporters asked him about the recent Shiv Sena activities that have triggered tensions in the city.
"Please, I have come here to your state for a good thing, to launch a health programme," Bachchan said.
This led to the next question that the query was relevant because it concerned the health of Mumbai, prompting his response.
Bachchan was in the city to launch a health project of the Resul Pookutty Foundation and a private hospital which will treat the poor and needy.
He also donated Rs.11 lakh to the foundation.
