Mumbai: Akshay Kumar is known for being a large-hearted person in real life and he has proved that once again. The ‘Kesari’ actor has donated Rs 1 crore for the victims of Cyclone Fani in Odisha. The donation has been made to the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund for the cyclone victims.
The coastal belt of Odisha was recently hit by cyclone Fani, with at least 34 people losing their lives and many rendered homeless. Beach town Puri, which is known for its famous Jagannath temple has been affected badly. Hundreds of houses have been torn apart by the cyclone. There is a lack of drinking water. Absence of electricity has led to ATMs remaining defunct over the past few days. People are running around helplessly for food, water and shelter.
Akshay Kumar, who has been recently focusing on movies with social causes like PadMan and Toilet: Ek Prem Katha among others is also doing his bit for social welfare in real life. He has already contributed for the armed force martyrs through his Bharat Ke Veer fundraising initiative. He had also contributed during natural disasters like the Kerala floods and Chennai floods in the past.
On the work front, Akki was last seen in Kesari, which entered the 150-crore club at the box office. He has a bunch of movies coming up by next year, which include his home production Mission Mangal, Housefull 4, Good News and Sooryavanshi.
