What did Mithun say about his discharge post-brain stroke?

Chakraborty during his address after leaving the hospital attributed his health setback to overeating but assured the public that aside from this, he faced no other complications. “I eat like a demon. So I was punished. My advice for everyone is control your diet. Those who are diabetic should not have the misconception that consuming sweets will not make any difference. Control your diet" he said.
