Actor Rishi Kapoor has pledged to donate his organs.
After distributing prizes to the winners of ‘Transplant Games 2014’ at the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, the 61-year-old actor signed a pledge to be an organ donor.
Kapoor appealed to the general public to come forward for this noble cause and donate organs after their death.
The games, which had 300 participants, were conceptualised to showcase the safety and success of transplantation as a means to a normal life and to spread awareness of kidney donation, a spokesperson said.
Kapoor was last seen in Yash Raj’s Bewakoofiyaan, where he played actress Sonam Kapoor’s father.
