Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar, who locked horns with Superstar Rajinikanth in director Shankar’s 2.0, has donated a humongous sum of Rs 25 crores to the Prime Minister’s relief fund to battle the coronavirus pandemic that has left the entire nation under a 21-day lock-down.
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’s wife Twinkle Khanna took to her Twitter page and explained the reason why Akshay opted to contribute such a huge amount for the relief measures.
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.’ https://t.co/R9hEin8KF1
