The actor, who celebrated his birthday on January 10, made it highly special this year by doing an extra bit.
He donated his eyes to support the cause.
Earlier, actors like Aishwarya Rai, Rajinikath, Amitabh-Jaya Bachchan, Suniel Shetty, Madhavan, Rani Mukerji, Sonakshi SInha and Hema Malini have already pledged their eyes.
According to a report in Times of India, chairman and director of Aditya Jyot Eye Hospital, Dr. S Natarajan asked Rakesh Roshan if Hrithik would like to promote eye donation and pledge his eyes. He was in for a pleasant surprise when the producer responded that his light-eyed son was already planning the same. Dr. Natarajan has an old association with the Roshan family since he was also the doctor of Hrithik’s paternal grandfather, the famous composer Roshan.
