Bollywood actor Sohail Khan and producer Boney Kapoor said they are ready to donate their skin to spread awareness about skin donation.

Sohail Khan said he got very emotional after he saw a video clip about “Operation Restoration”, an initiative led by National Burns Centre which conducts plastic surgeries on patients with burn injuries and acid attack victims.

“Well Doc (doctor), my skin is yours… When we were watching that (clip), it was extremely emotional. How you guys volunteer your time, this is the least we can do,” Sohail told reporters at a press conference of Season six of Celebrity Cricket League.

“I am not saying on behalf of my team, Mumbai heroes… But whichever form you want me to sign, send it tomorrow and I’ll sign it,” he added.

Boney Kapoor said he endorses the actor’s view and wished to sign the form too. “I definitely endorse Sohail’s view that we should take initiative and promote skin donation. Sohail is ready to sign the form tomorrow, I am ready to sign it today,” he said.

Bhjopuri actor Dinesh Lal Yadav, popularly known as ‘Nirahua’, also wished to donate his skin as “this will send a good message to the audience.”

CCL season six kicks off on January 23.
