The actor also clarified in the post that contrary to the rumours that were floating around, ‘NEURO’ is not always about the brain and that googling is not always the easiest way to research.
“I have never given up and have always fought for my choices and always will. My family and friends are with me and we are working it out the best way possible. In trying times, please don’t speculate as I will myself share with you my story within a week – 10 days, when further investigations come with a conclusive diagnosis. Till then, wish the best for me,” he added.
