As India continues to battle the deadly second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, there are many commoners including celebrities who are doing their best to help people in need of oxygen cylinders, medicines and hospital beds. Celebs are raising awareness and urging everyone to come out and support as well. Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna, as we know, have been doing their bit to help those in need. A couple of days ago, Akshay Kumar donated one crore to cricketer Gautam Gambhir for his Delhi-based foundation for the COVID-19 victims.
Twinkle Khanna, on the other hand, has been sharing Instagram posts and informed that she managed to arrange hundred oxygen concentrators. The actress has also been urging others to come forward and donate in these tough times. Despite all that, a Twitter user accused Twinkle Khanna and Akshay Kumar of not doing enough. He asked her why she was urging others to donate rather than making donations herself.
Former officer Surya Pratap Singh wrote, 'Twinkle ji, your husband is among the richest artists in this country. Rather than pretending to help by collecting donations, it would have been better had your family show a little more kindness." Twinkle Khanna defended herself and Akshay Kumar by saying, "Have donated 100 concentrators toward this cause & in multiple other ways. As I've said before, it's not about me or you but what we can do collectively for those in need. Sad that at this point, instead of pitching in, we expend energy in pulling people down. Stay safe."
Apart from Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna, other celebrities who have come forward to help India include Sonu Sood, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Sushmita Sen, Bhumi Pednekar among others.
