Mumbai: While India is fighting its battle with the coronovirus COVID-19 epidemic, film industry celebrities are making every effort to help in whatever way possible.
Many people have contributed a large amount to various relief funds of the government, while some have also taken care of help like food and medical facilities for the needy. The Bollywood superstar recently contributed Rs 25 crore to the PM Care Fund, so that the government can move forward in its fight to stop the virus with more vigor.
Now according to the latest reports, Star has donated an amount of Rs 3 crore to BMC to help them make PPE, masks and rapid testing kits, which are already needed in greater numbers to protect health workers from the disease.
Healthists are treating infected patients and COVID-19 requires more kits to test as many people as possible.
According to media reports, when Akshay felt that the city was finding it difficult to produce these resources on a large scale, while it was necessary to treat patients even after limited resources, he immediately extended financial support to BMC.
BMC’s Joint Municipal Commissioner, Ashutosh Salil also reportedly confirmed that the Sooryavanshi actor approached the BMC commissioner to donate. He informed that the funds that will come in aid of Akshay will go to the general fund and will be used while producing the safety equipment required for health workers.
Apart from making financial contributions, Akshay has been spreading awareness about COVID-19 among his fans since the day the lockdown was announced through his social media accounts.
He recently posted a video and his own, thanking the police, municipal workers, doctors, nurses, NGOs, volunteers, government officials, vendors, building guards as well as others from the heart. Shared a photo.
On the work front, the star was last seen in ‘Good News’ alongside Kareena Kapoor Khan, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani. He will soon appear in Sooryavanshi along with other Bollywood legends like Ajay Devgan, Katrina Kaif and Ranveer Singh.
