Akshay Hailed As 'Khiladi Who Plays Straight From The Heart' For His 25 Cr. Donation, PM Modi, Bollywood Lauds His Efforts
Bollywood Lauds Akshay For 25 Crores Donation
India is under a lockdown till 14th April to control the spread of the novel coronavirus in the country. Coronavirus has been declared a pandemic and has affected hundreds of thousands of people across the globe. But with the lockdown, there came a woe for the poor who earn their money with daily activities. PM Narendra Modi had therefore announced PM Relief Care for those who would be severely affected by the lockdown and Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar set a shining example by pledging to donate a whopping Rs. 25 crore towards this noble cause.
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
This is something that has made all of us proud about the star. But wife Twinkle Khanna seems to be the proudest of them all. Taking to Twitter, she wrote, “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.’” See her tweet here:

Khiladi who plays straight from the Heart ... proud to have known and work with you @akshaykumar ???— Paresh Rawal (@SirPareshRawal) March 29, 2020
With no ulterior motives or desire for a political career, or setting sight for Ambassadorship or favours from the Gov; here is this gentleman citizen who pays his taxes honestly & does charity passionately. Yet some low lives call @akshaykumar a Canadian citizen !— Paresh Rawal (@SirPareshRawal) March 29, 2020
In fact, PM Narendra Modi too acknowledged the contribution by calling it a ‘great gesture.’
R. Madhavan called him a ‘true hero’.

Varun Dhawan and Hrithik Roshan seems to have been inspired from Akshay’s generous gesture and has pledged support to the cause. While Varun has donated Rs. 30 lakh, Hrithik would donate N95 and FFP3 masks for BMC workers.
I pledge to contribute 30 lakhs to the PM CARE fund. We will over come this. Desh hai toh hum hain. https://t.co/E87IU22NaF— Varun Dhawan (@Varun_dvn) March 28, 2020
