Basis the investigations he was informed if the tumor is operated upon, several other complications could arise, and his other senses could also be compromised. Thus, currently, he is on medication and goes for a regular check-up, to detect any further anomalies that may occur.

Anand shared that when his condition was detected, he was motivated to share his story - but in the right manner. 

You have no idea of life and death, so I wanted this biopic to be made while I am alive. I made sure that till the time I am alive, my journey should be narrated in a right manner. So for that I read the script 13 times so that nothing goes wrong.
