Realising the current pandemic situation throughout the country, leading actors and celebrities have been making financial donations to the Government to fight the virus. Leading stars from Telugu cinema announced donations to the central and state governments and we had reported about it. Following that, Bollywood star Akshay Kumar has announced a generous donation of Rs 25 crores for the Prime Minister Relief Fund (PM - CARES). Akshay Kumar is a socially responsible actor who has always cared for people and we have seen him do similar noble gestures before.
This huge donation of 25 crores has earned him so much of respect, support and love among his fans and the citizens nationwide. On the work front, Akshay Kumar was last seen in the comedy drama, Good Newwz, directed by Raj Mehta and it was a blockbuster hit at the box office. Akshay’s next release would be his action cop thriller, Sooryavanshi, directed by Rohit Shetty and the film has interesting cameo performances from Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh.
Sooryavanshi was initially scheduled to hit the screens on March 24, however, it has now been postponed to a later date due to the Corona pandemic. Akshay Kumar is also committed to acting in director Aanand L Rai’s Atrangi Re, that stars Dhanush and Sara Ali Khan in lead roles.
This is that time when all that matters is the lives of our people. And we need to do anything and everything it takes. I pledge to contribute Rs 25 crores from my savings to @narendramodi ji’s PM-CARES Fund. Let’s save lives, Jaan hai toh jahaan hai. 🙏🏻 https://t.co/dKbxiLXFLS— Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) March 28, 2020
