    Riddhima Kapoor Sahni took to Instagram Stories to laud her husband for donating plasma.
    The daughter of late actor Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni, was a proud wife on Instagram, as she shared that her husband Bharat Sahni donated blood plasma amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

    The jewellery designer took to Instagram Stories, to post a picture of Sahni donating plasma in a hospital.

    "So proud of you for donating your plasma and saving someone's life today. Well done," she wrote.

    While there have been no mentions of Sahni having being infected by the novel coronavirus, a person is only eligible to donate plasma if they have fully recovered from Covid-19 and have been free of symptoms for 14 days.

    Plasma therapy involves transfusion of plasma from a convalescent patient to a critical Covid patient.
