Bollywood stands in support of World Thalassemia Day by posting selfies of half of their faces

Yesterday it was World Thalassemia Day to spread awareness about this less-talked-about yet critical disease. A lot of people tend to ignore this blood related disease an unimportant but they don’t realise just how serious it is. Celebs like Abhishek Bachchan, Sonakshi Sinha, Rajkummar Rao and many others took to their Instagram to share pictures of half of their faces to raise awareness about it. While they shared their pictures, they nominated a minimum of 3 other Bollywood celebs to do the same.

When they posted their pictures, they made sure to upload it with the caption, “Did you know that when both, husband and wife, have Thalassemia Minor, there is a 25% chance that their child will have Thalassemia Major and will usually not live beyond 30 years? Today, on #WorldThalassemiaDay, by posting this picture of half my face, I am supporting the #AadhiwaliZindagiMitao movement to remind everyone to get tested for Thalassemia and avoid giving their child half a life. Visit www.thewishingfactory.org or call 844-844-9544 to schedule a Thalassemia test and to donate to help patients. Post a picture of your face cropped in half on Instagram and tag three others to do the same! @TheWishingFactory”
