“People should say, ‘Jaate Jaate Healthy Organs Chhod Kar Gaya’”, says Riteish Deshmukh while championing the cause of Organ Donation on the Karamveer special episode of KBC
The 12th season of KBC not only made an impressive comeback last week, but is once again proving to be a platform that celebrates personal wins. From contestants to Karamveers, we’ve come across various individuals to understand that knowledge knows no bounds, and it’s always good to value the power of knowledge. This Friday, as a part of the Karamveer special episode, KBC will extend a warm welcome to Dr. Sunil Shroff, Founder & Managing Trustee of MOHAN Foundation and accompanying him on the Hot Seat will be actor Riteish Deshmukh.
Started in 1997, MOHAN (Multi Organ Harvesting Aid Network) Foundation is a pioneering NGO in the area of deceased organ donation and has been working towards spreading awareness for organ donation since last two decades. Riteish however, recently pledged to donate his organs along with his wife, Genelia Deshmukh on a social media platform. Together Dr. Shroff and Riteish will be championing the cause of Organ Donation on the Karamveer episode of KBC which can prove to be a gift of life for someone in need.
Riteish Deshmukh, who was seen supporting Dr. Shroff shared his thoughts on what made him take such a huge decision of Organ Donation. Said Riteish, “We (Genelia & Riteish) have been thinking about this (Organ Donation) for a few years now. During this lockdown, we got a lot of time to think about what we should do.
Unfortunately, we dint have a lot of information on Organ Donation like where to go and how to go about the process. One day we both decided to make a video and said that we want to go out there and donate whatever possible. We often speak about afterlife or punar janam… but kya yehi janam kisi ki aankhe ya dil banke ho sakta hai? Why not? While I was backstage I heard Jeevan Daan hi sab se bada daan hai and if you can help someone even after your death, then there is nothing greater than that.”
The eloquent actor further added, “I have given up non-vegetarian food, black coffee and aerated drinks. I want to keep my body healthy. And eventually, when the time comes for donating my organs, people should say, ‘Jaate Jaate Healthy Organs Chhod Kar Gaya’”
These heartfelt words from Riteish attracted a huge round of applause and praise from both Mr. Bachchan and Dr. Shroff.
