Bollywood veteran actor Madhuri Dixit showered praise on her younger son Ryan who recently donated his hair to the Cancer Society on National Cancer Awareness Day.
Madhuri took to her Instagram handle and shared a video of Ryan sitting at a salon and getting a haircut for the donation.
Sharing the clip, Madhuri wrote an inspirational caption detailing how her son made the decision.
Calling her son, a ‘hero’, Madhuri wrote, “NOT ALL HEROES WEAR CAPES….. But mine did. On the occasion of National Cancer Day, I would like to share something really special.”
Giving a shoutout to her son, the ‘Kalank’ actor added, “Ryan felt heartbroken seeing several folks who were undergoing chemo for cancer. With everything they go through, they lose their hair. My son took a call of donating his hair to the Cancer Society. We as parents were thrilled with his decision. As per guidelines, it took him almost 2 years to grow the required length of hair. And this was the final step. Here we are today standing proud. @drneneofficial”

Actor Shilpa Shetty commented, “Such a beautiful thought, bless him.”
