Actress Dimple Kapadia emphasizes that cinema, while not a school, imparts values and raises awareness about medical conditions and various life aspects. Kapadia shared her perspective during an event commemorating the 25th anniversary of India’s first liver transplant.
She highlighted the role of cinema in subtly spreading awareness and instilling positive values, drawing from her own experience growing up with movies. Kapadia acknowledged Indian cinema’s history of addressing medical issues and attended the event to honor Sanjay Kandasamy, the recipient of India’s inaugural successful liver transplant.
The actor also praised the work done by Apollo hospitals and its doctors in the field of liver transplant. Asked about her message to the public on organ donation, Kapadia expressed hope that more people will come forward, emphasizing the positive impact without losing anything in the process.
Apollo Hospitals Group Medical Director Dr. Anupam Sibal highlighted the significant number of liver transplants conducted, including procedures on children, since the landmark transplant 25 years ago. He also referenced Kapadia’s character in the film “Dil Chahta Hai,” where liver cirrhosis was portrayed as a “silent killer.”
