Currently, Sudhir Choudhrie is healthy and is among the heart transplant survivors, and so is focused on social responsibility to improve the lives of the people who saved him from death.

Even before the heart transplant, Sudhir was a humanitarian, and only redoubled the dedication to ensure more social responsibility in the past twenty years. Sudhir has also made philanthropy, a part of his life to bolster the communities that stood by him in the blink of death.
