Kudos To These Celebs Who Fought Serious Illness And Emerged As Real Heroes

When we think of Bollywood, what comes to our mind? It’s the glamour that we see. But everything is not as glitzy as it seems. The heroes of our films are sometimes asked to entertain their fans even if they are in the worst of their health. And, yes! Some actors have shown great courage by performing for their fans despite battling severe health concerns. There are many actors in the film industry who not only fought through severe illnesses, but also came out stronger than never before. Listed below are a few names who battled some dangerous diseases:

Salman Khan

While working for his film ‘Partner’ with co-star Govinda in the year 2007, he experienced the symptoms of a disease named Trigeminal Neuralgia which leads to facial shocks at certain time intervals. This health concern is grave as there is no specific cure to this and only surgery can be a solution for relief. However, despite surgery, these facial shocks can continue to happen. Severe temperature can trigger the facial shocks, leading to excruciating pain. Salman has undergone many surgeries for the same, but he lets nothing come in between his fans when it comes to performing in front of the camera. Our favourite Chulbul Pandey continues to be ‘Dabbang’ and goes about his daily routine typically.
