Ever since Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced the 21 day lockdown in India to curtail the spread of the novel coronavirus, the country has come to a standstill. However, the situation has been becoming intense with every passing day as the toll of positive cases across the nation as crossed 900 so far along with 19 deaths across the nation. Recently, PM Modi announced CARES funds inviting donations to strengthen India’s fight against COVID 19.

And while Akshay Kumar has been actively raising awareness about self quarantine and has been urging the fans to stay indoors, he has also taken step towards supporting India’s battle against the highly transmissible disease. The superstar has pledged to donate Rs 25 crore from his savings to PM’s CARES fund. Sharing the news on social media, Akshay stated that all that matters at the moment 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,” he tweeted.

Soon, Akshay’s tweet got a reply from Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who appreciated the superstar’s efforts. Calling it a “good gesture”, PM Modi wrote, “Let’s keep donating for a healthier India.”

Take a look at Akshay Kumar’s tweet about donating to PM’s CARES fund for fight against coronavirus:

Apart from Akshay, celebs like Hrithik Roshan, Kapil Sharma, South stars Prabhas, Pawan Kalyan, Mahesh Babu, Chiranjeevi, Ram Charan, etc have also announced their donation for the cause.

I think we should donate to funds that are audited. We never get to hear how much is there in these funds and how these are disbursed. I hear a lot.of these funds are trusts and there is no audit. Please donate wisely.

Will all big boys who donate big sums be above law now?

add hrithik roshan,kangana ranaut,mahesh babu,prahbas,rajni sir,hema malini,pawan kalyan,kapil sharma to the lists.others are just hypocrites.

I seriously hope many follow his footsteps. But I'm sure many are doing their bit without making it public. Let's not judge here.

I've never seen so much from one individual (for one cause). For people like me, this is about 3 million dollars. Props to Akshay and Twinkle, proud of people for actually doing something, no stupid videos, thank god.

It is 5 Million Dollars. One Crore is equal to $150,000.
It is excellent step by Akshay and Twinkle.

Akshay,

Her Nemat Her Khushi Tumhari Ho..

Mehak Uthy Wo Manzar Jahan Hansi Tumhari Ho..

Koi Lamha Tumhara Udaas Na Ho..

Khuda Kery Jannat Jesi Zindgi Tumhari Ho..!

Dil se duaa Akshay sir Khuda aap ko sab kuch de.

It’s gone back to where it came from :) Good gesture though.

Akshay Sir: Kya Baat Hai.

Bestest Human Being in Bollywood Akshay.

Kudos to Akshay and Twinkle. May all your movies become a block buster hit.

The rest are busy making videos, hoarding money they have made..Bachchans,Aishwarya, Khans, Ajay Devgan, Tendulkar, Ambani, Virat and Anushka,Deepika and Ranveer, Alia and Ranbir, Kareena and Saif, Kangana, Katrina,Hrithik, Dhoni, BCCI etc..fit only to hoard money, walk the airport ramps, take selfies, make useless videos, give gyan..they have all gone quiet after Akshay's humble contribution.

Well done Akshay.I have always admired your work and your gesture further reinforced the admiration.
Well where are the so called God for nothing Khans/ Angrezi Nawab/Opportunistic Deepika/Fakester Anushka&Kohli/Psuedo Feminist Swara.No movie to promote ?All these cheapsters are busy with their silly videos.

Seriously ashamed of SRK and Aamir! Pathetic and shameful. They have done ZERO for their country

Also, where are those corrupt rich politicians? what's their contribution?

Where are those bebo n gang, Kjo n gang ! Khans - bachchans.. deepika katrina.. so called virushka.. nawab for namesake! Hate these now.

Superb. Akshay is great when it comes to doing something for the nation. Not like bachans, Khan’s, kapoors and the like. Ma’am bade aur Darshan chote.

Where are Salman, Shahrukh, Aamir, Hrithik, Ranbeer, Ranvir & Deepika, Bachchan, Kareena and Saif,Malaika, Ekta Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Aditya Chopra, Anil & Sonam Kapoor, anupam Kher, Karan Johar, Sajid Nadiwala, Tiger Shroff, Shraada Kapoor, Zoya Akhtar, Ajay Devagan, Madhuri Dixit, Kirti Sannon, Katrina Kaif, Ayshuman Khurana, Tabu, Shahid Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, Vidya Balan and her husband all these people have done very well plus many more people from the industry where are they.
It is time to save your country and the world.

Hrithik has donated too.

Big Salute to Akshay may God give you 10 times more and keep your family safe and blessed.

Bollywood celebrities can ever be like Hollywood. Not just celebrities even athletes. So many well known people in the US have donated so much money and contributed. And Indians, they only care for themselves. The sad part is that the community thinks these people are their Gods! Wake up India, those famous people don’t care. It’s time you guys start treating your doctors and scientists as such.

Wake up India... ur so called heroes r sitting safenin their houses making stupid videos about washing dishes n workouts.... call out all of these idiots to match Akshay... well done Kumar

Wow. Just read about this great kindness in telugu online Newspaper. Bow to you Akshay ji. I am older than you but you earned our respect to be addressed as ji irrespective of our age. I live in USA. But this never before and may not be never after gesture from a movie actor needs a bow from all human kind from whole world. I am still waiting to read in Pinkvilla, that your contemporaries who flash expensive hand bags, shoes, sun glasses, watches when they are in and out of airports learn to be humans and open up their purses. God bless you and your family. Be one and only like you always are.

Well done Akshay!!

Respect for him! Where are other celebs who are treated like god ? Simply posting timepass quarantine videos and doing nothing for nation.Fake hero heroines. Heroes are doctors, scientists and armed people who are saving country men everyday, not these timepass cheapsters

God bless you

Sleeping with their crores

Where are the Deepikas Ranbirs Aamirs etc and other Bollywood folks
