Author and wife of Bollywood Actor Akshay Kumar, Twinkle Khanna has revealed the exact reason behind her husband’s massive donation to the COVID-19 relief fund.
Akshay Kumar’s 25 Crore rupees donation to the relief fund
A few days ago, Bollywood superstar announced Rs. 25 crores as his contribution towards the COVID-19 emergency fund. Here is what he said on his Twitter handle about the same:
“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 Narendra Modi ji’s PM CARES Fund. Let’s save lives, Jaan hai toh jahaan hai.”
PM Modi also thanked Akki for his gesture.
Twinkle reveals the exact reason behind the donation. Soon after Akshay announced his donation, Twinkle appreciated his efforts on Twitter.
“The man makes me proud. When I asked him if he was sure as it was such a massive amount and we needed to liquidate funds, he just said, ‘ I had nothing when I started and now that I am in this position, how can I hold back from doing whatever I can for those who have nothing.“
This is truly a nice gesture from Akshay Kumar, and hopefully, more from the industry would follow suit in the coming days.
With cases mounting day by day, it is necessary that the Government of India steps up its efforts towards combating the pandemic. It is here that the valuable contributions of the celebrities would really help.
