‘Last act’ - Kannada actor Sanchari Vijay saves lives through organ donation


National award-winning Kannada actor Sanchari Vijay’s ‘last act’ will be forever remembered.  His family took the humane decision of donating his organs after his untimely death. The 37-year-old actor met with a bike accident on 12th June this year in Bengaluru. His bike hit an electric pole and he sustained grievous head injuries that resulted in brain death. His brother Siddesh Kumar said that the family decided to donate his organs and offer organ failure patients hope of a new life. Vijay won the National award for his performance in the film, NaanuAvanalla…Avalu (I am not a he, I am a she) about a transwoman having the right to live life on her terms and that humanity comes first. Vijay’s act of organ donation exemplified just that.
