CHENNAI: One of Tamil cinema's popular actresses, Meena, has pledged her organs for donation.

On social media, the actress said: "There is no greater good than saving lives. Organ donation is one of the noblest ways to save lives. It is a boon, a second chance for many who are battling chronic illness, which I personally went through. Wish my Sagar was blessed with more donors, which could have changed my life! One donor can save eight lives. Hope everyone understands the importance of organ donation. It's not just between the donors and recipients and doctors. It greatly affects families, friends, colleagues and acquaintances. Today, I am taking a pledge to donate my organs."

In a tribute to her late husband Vidyasagar, the actress concluded her post with: "The best way to make your legacy to live on. Love Meena Sagar."
