Irrfan Khan Offers to Donate His Organ to Vinod Khanna | Here’s Why

Actor Irrfan Khan is in the news everywhere for the noble cause. He is being the good Samaritan of the tinsel town for extending his support in donating the organ to the veteran actor, Vinod Khanna, who is suffering from cancer.

A few days back the social media was flooded with the latest images of frail and weak looking Vinod Khanna in the hospital. Though his son, VJ- turned- actor Rahul Khanna had confirmed his recovery to the media but his latest pictures show his deteriorating health. Irrfan Khan was very shocked to see his idol actor is such a condition that he announced to donate his organ if needed.

Why is Irrfan Khan ready to donate organ

Though Vinod Khanna and Irrfan Khan had never shared the screen together but they share a good relation of a mentor and a student. The 49-year old Bollywood and Hollywood actor, Irrfan Khan considers Vinod Khanna and Dharmendra as his heroes and worships them for what they have achieved in the Indian Cinema. Watching his idol (Vinod Khanna) terribly sick has taken him aback that he couldn’t resist himself from hushing up people on social media to stop sharing pictures of the unwell actor. He had even made an appeal to the public and media to respect the privacy of the family that is required at this sensitive time. He has also extended his prayers for Vinod Khanna’s speedy recovery.

More about Irrfan Khan’s noble heart

Earlier this year, Irrfan Khan had come forward in support to an organ donating campaign, ‘More to Give’ and had mentioned that what else could be beautiful than giving a life to a dead person. He believes that the body is mortal and will get destroyed with the last ritual of the human’s life journey. By donating organs, a human can live into this world forever and feel good by contributing to the noble cause. Irrfan Khan is now the brand ambassador of the campaign and promotes organ donation among the masses.

Life and career of Vinod Khanna
