Bollywood’s Big B pledges organ donation

Bollywood’s Big B megastar Amitabh Bachchan on Wednesday trumpeted that he has pledged to donate his organs.

Turning to Twitter, the veteran actor shared a picture of himself with a green ribbon on his coat, and wrote, “I am a pledged ORGAN DONOR. I wear the green ribbon of its sanctity !”

He wrote in another tweet, “T 3674/5 – … in fulfillment of ancestors .. in the remembrance of them that lived in time, to give us this today .. honour for them done .. may their blessings be with us ever .. NO .. the deed be not ever disclosed .. they that know, shall ever know ..”

Earlier on Monday, the 77-year-old star shared his blog about shooting a Karamveer special episode for the quiz show KBC. The photo he shared seems to be from the same episode where he wore the green ribbon.

Talking about its significance, he had written, “the green ribbon is the acceptance of the fact that we are organ donors .. and if there be no money’s left with harry and sally .. then the desire to overcome becomes excitable.”

The actor has recently recovered from COVID-19. He was admitted to the Lilavati hospital for several weeks before he could be discharged after testing negative for the virus.
