Hrithik Roshan is all heart. The actor was recently invited as the Guest of Honour at the Save a Heart programme at Seven Hills Hospital, which specializes in the treatment of Congenital Heart Disease (CHD). Upon visiting the hospital, the actor was moved by the plight of the children there and decided to fund the treatment of 10 children at the hospital.



Incidentally, the Save A Heart programme serves as a liaison between a willing donor who would donate money for operation /intervention of a child with CHD, and an underprivileged child with CHD who would be treated at SevenHills Hospital, and lead a healthy life in future. Dr. Pai who is also the family friend of the Roshans invited Hrithik to this event.



Last week, Hrithik was also the showstopper at Manish Malhotra’s fashion show for the Mijwan Welfare Society that is run by Shabana Azmi. Azmi’s father, poet-lyricist Kaifi Azmi, had set up the society that supports the empowerment of the girl child in rural India.



Upon completing the show, Hrithik made an individual contribution of Rs 10 lakh to the society.
