MUMBAI: Actor-comedian Kapil Sharma, who invited the national blind cricket team over for his hugely popular "The Kapil Sharma Show", has pledged to donate his eyes.

During his interaction with the team members, Kapil was so inspired by them that he pledged to donate his eyes.

Talking about it, Kapil said in a statement: "We usually don't realise that sometimes even a small gesture from our end can make someone very happy. After talking to them, I realised that eye donation is something I should have done long back.

"Hence, I decided then and there that I will donate my eyes. If someone can see the world with my eyes when I'm gone, I will feel very good about it."

"The Kapil Sharma Show" is aired on Sony Entertainment Television.
