As indicated once by Kapoor himself that he wanted to “live for the four other days of the week. When my wife would call me to enquire where I was I would be driving off to Lonavla to have a cup of tea. I loved my driving and I wanted to live it up with kidney disease,” Shammi had famously said.
“A real hero is someone who helps everyone else recycle their organs. I have pledged my own organs and you can too and visit www. amargandhifoundation. in to register,” says Ayan and Karan in a video message, and asking everyone else to support by doing the same.
