Actors Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia Deshmukh have taken a pledge to donate their organs.

Earlier, Riteish took to his Instagram handle to share a video in which they talked about their pledge to donate an organ, something they have been thinking for quite a long time and said that there can be no “greater gift to someone than ‘The Gift Of Life’”

“@geneliad & me have pledged to donate our organs. We urge you all to join this great cause and be part of ‘The Life AfterLife’, “ wrote the ‘Masti’ actor.

“Aaj 1st July ko hum ye kehna chahte hain aur aapko ye batana chaahte hain ki hum dono ne ek pledge liya hai. (Today, on July 1 we want to tell you about something that we have pledged), we have decided to donate our organs,” said Riteish in the video.

“Yes, we pledge have pledged to donate our organs and for us, there’s no better gift than the gift of life,” added Genelia.

The National Organ and Tissue Transplant Organisation (NOTTO) took to their official handle on X to express gratitude to the ace actors. The caption along with the video reads, “Thanks to Riteish Deshmukh & Genelia, the Bollywood star couple, for pledging to donate their organs during the ongoing organ donation month of July. Their gesture will motivate others also to connect with the noble cause.#organdonation #Bollywood #savelives”
