Akshay Kumar donates INR 10 million as India's Covid crisis worsens

Sushmita Sen also extended her help by donating oxygen cylinders during India's Covid crisis.

Deeply disturbed by the surge in Covid-19 cases, scarce oxygen supply and short-staffed hospitals during India battle with Covid, Bollywood star Akshay Kumar has donated INR 10 million to the Gautam Gambhir foundation.

The news was shared on social media by former cricketer Gambhir, who thanked the De Dana Dan star for his generosity.

"Every help in this gloom comes as a ray of hope. Thanks a lot Akshay Kumar for committing Rs 1 crore to #GGF for food, meds and oxygen for the needy! God bless. #InThisTogether," he posted, informing fans and followers of the donation.

Acknowledging the mention, the star responded saying he was glad to help.

"These are really tough times, Gautam Gambhir. Glad I could help. Wish we all get out of this crisis soon. Stay Safe," he replied.

However, Kumar is not the only celebrity from Bollywood to lend a helping hand during such terrible times. Previously, Main Hoon Na star Sushmita Sen managed to arrange oxygen cylinders, asking for help transporting them to areas that needed urgent aid.

"This is deeply heartbreaking... oxygen crisis is everywhere. I have managed to organise a few oxygen cylinders for this hospital but have no way to transport it to Delhi from Mumbai... please help me find a way," she had written, sharing a video of a CEO at a hospital in Delhi who was explaining details of the crisis the country was going through.

He is only saving his own skin from criticism as people have already started criticizing these celebrities for lack of their role in helping the common Hindustani public in these tough times. He is one of those supporters of Adolf Modi who believe that Modi could do no wrong.

Good job. All others @ Bollywood should follow. The alternate to Oxygen Cylinder is Oxygen Concentrators. These can be produced in India fast.

The whole India is petrified, citizens are searching for emergency help, coordinating life support & trying to keep the government accountable, but the GOI, instead of saving lives, is bringing social media censorship. Condemnable!

Very commendable. However, it must be noted that he will get a tax relief for the same amount, so it is free publicity.

This time industrialists like TATA , Jindal, Ambani and Adani have contributed much more than this film stars. Stars like Tendulkar, Gavaskar and Ravi Sastri are busy earning in IPL.

Just trying to save whatever popularity left of him since he became a big supporter of racist modi like amitabh and ajay devgan.
