While Aaradhya Mule (4) has been waiting for a donor heart for last six months, another child, Shlok Andhale (1.5), registered for heart transplant at Fortis Hospital last week.
Both, Aaradhya and Shlok, have end-stage heart disease – dilated cardiomyopathy. While only 10% of Aaradhya’s heart is functional, Shlok has 15% of his heart functioning.
“Heart transplant is the only way to save them. They have not seen the world. We all need to come together to give them a new lease of life,” said Jadhav.

Actor speaks on Sangli foeticide
Speaking on the Sangli female foeticide racket which came into light on Sunday, Jadhav said the incident is shocking and shameful.
“It is very shocking, especially when the central government’s flagship programme is Save Girl Child campaign,” said Jadhav.
Sangli police on Sunday recovered 19 foetuses with many in highly decomposed state. Police have arrested homeopath Babasaheb Khidrapure, who ran Bharti Hospital in Mhaisal village in Sangli district of Maharashtra. Khidrapure is in police custody.
“Girls have been excelling in all fields. It is high time that the society changes its mind-set towards girl child and towards women,” concluded Jadhav.
