Amid the severe outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, superstar Akshay Kumar has stepped forward to contribute Rs 25 crore to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s CARES fund. In a tweet, the actor mentioned that it is the moment when the only thing that matters is the lives of our people.

A while ago, Prime Minister Modi had shared a tweet urging people to donate funds for disaster management facilities. He wrote: “The PM-CARES Fund also accepts micro-grants. It will strengthen disaster management capabilities and encourage research to protect citizens. Let us not leave stone unturned to make India healthier and more prosperous for our future generations. ”

In response to the Prime Minister’s tweet, Akshay mentioned: “This is the time when the only thing that matters is the lives of our people. And we have to do whatever is necessary. I agree to contribute Rs 25 million of my savings to @narendramodi ji’s PM-CARES Fund. Let’s save lives, Jaan hai toh jahaan hai. ”

In response to the actor’s post, PM wrote: “Great gesture @akshaykumar. Let’s continue donating for a healthier India. ”

Recently, Akshay also shared a video sternly addressing Indian citizens to follow government instructions and not leave their homes in the midst of the shutdown. “At the risk of sounding repetitive, sharing my thoughts … there is a blockage for a reason. Please don’t be selfish and venture out, you are putting the lives of others at risk
