Akshay Kumar is best known for his philanthropy works and the actor has always come forward for the nation’s support. While the actor was the first to donate to the PM-CARES Fund after Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged everyone to donate for the cause, he pledged another donation to BMC.
The Hera Pheri actor had lent his support to the government to fight the viral pandemic and donated 25 crore Indian rupees in less than an hour of the request by the Prime Minister. Following his footsteps, a number of Bollywood celebrities, big or small, came forward and pledged support to relief funds.
