Akshay donates Rs 1 crore to Chief Minister’s Relief Fund for Odisha cyclone victims

Mumbai: The destruction that took place in Odisha in last week due to cyclone Fani sent the entire country into gloom, with loss of so many precious lives. Help has been pouring in from various quarters in this time of crisis, and actor Akshay Kumar has been one of the helping hands.
He has consistently proved that he doesn’t restrict his big-heartedness to just the heroes he plays on the big screen. In real life too, he has always been always ready to do his bit. In the latest instance, we have learnt that he has donated Rs 1 crore to the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund for the Odisha cyclone victims. “This is not new. Akshay has always been contributing for causes, be it his Bharat ke Veer initiative for the armed forces, or his contribution to the Kerala Floods or Chennai floods earlier,” says an industry source.
Earlier, Akshay had vowed to donate ₹5 crore through Bharat Ke Veer — a fund-raising initiative of the Union Ministry of Home Affairs. He had also extended a helping hand to the rain ravaged Chennai in 2015 by donating Rs 1 crore for relief work.
We tried getting in touch with the Odisha CM’s office for a comment, but we were awaiting a reply till the time this story was published.
