“T 3674/5 – … in fulfilment of ancestors .. in the remembrance of them that lived in time , to give us this today .. honour for them done .. may their blessings be with us ever .. NO .. the deed be not ever disclosed .. they that know , shall ever know .. (sic),” he wrote in another tweet.
The picture seems to be from the Karamveer special episode for ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’, where he sported the green ribbon.
Talking about the significance of the ribbon, the veteran actor wrote on his blog: “The green ribbon is the acceptance of the fact that we are organ donors … and if there be no money’s left with Harry and Sally .. then the desire to overcome becomes excitable.”
