Aamir Khan keen to donate organs, says wife Kiran Rao

Mumbai: Filmmaker Kiran Rao, who has taken a pledge to donate her organs, reveals that her actor-filmmaker husband Aamir Khan is also keen to follow in her footsteps.

"Aamir is definitely keen to donate his organs as well," Kiran told reporters at an organ donation camp on Tuesday. She was present on the occasion along with  Ship Of Theseus director Anand Gandhi.

She feels that Ship Of Theseus spreads the message beautifully. Kiran has released the film in the country in collaboration with UTV Motion Pictures.

"If anyone has seen the film ('Ship Of Theseus'), I hope they will definitely be convinced that it's the most beautiful and most logical thing to do," she said.

Kiran, who directed "Dhobi Ghat", would now try her best to encourage the members of the film fraternity, friends and family to go in for organ donation.

"Anyone I will meet, I will definitely discuss it with them. I am not necessarily going to call up the celebrities, tell them and convince them of this cause.

"I don't know whether it is going to be easy for me to talk to all the celebrities and become the ambassador for this (organ donation). I am happy to try, but certainly I would like to encourage friends in the fraternity, people I know and definitely my family to donate their organs," she added.
