Several notable personalities from various industries are coming forward to make their donations towards the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Relief Funds for controlling the second wave of Covid 19. Earlier in the week, we saw actors Sivakumar, Suriya, and Karthi donating an amount of Rs. 1 crore towards the CM Relief Fund. Following that, actor Ajith Kumar has now made his donation towards the relief fund. According to the official information from Ajith Kumar's PR Manager, Suresh Chandra, the ace actor has donated an amount of Rs. 25 Lakhs towards the TN CM Relief Fund and he made the donation through bank transfer, earlier today (May 14).

This news has created a huge buzz on social media and the much loved actor's gesture is appreciated by one and all. Suresh Chandra's official tweet read, "Shri Ajith kumar had donated twenty five lakhs to the Chief minister relief fund today via bank transfer.". The Tamil Nadu Government's first press release stated that Ajith donated Rs 2.5 crores, but later it was clarified that a typo error had occured in the Government Press Release. It was confirmed through another press release which confirmed that Ajith donated Rs 25 Lakhs and not 2.5 Crores. We can expect many other notable film stars to make their donations in the coming weeks.

Ajith Kumar, on the professional front, will next be seen in Valimai, which is directed by H Vinoth. Valimai features Kaala fame Huma Qureshi as the female lead and has music scored by Yuvan Shankar Raja. Popular Telugu hero Kartikeya will be seen as the key antagonist of the film and it is going to be interesting to see his faceoff against Ajith. Produced by Boney Kapoor under the banner of Bayview Projects LLP, the film is planned to release in August 2021, but the plan might change depending upon the intensity of the Covid 19 second wave in the coming weeks.

The film's first look poster was supposed to release on May 1 for Ajith's 50th birthday, but the plan was called off due to the medical crisis in the country. For now, check out the official confirmation tweet of Ajith Kumar's donation towards TN CM Relief Fund here:
