Just sometime back, Akshay had taken to his Twitter handle to make an announcement that he will be contributing a huge amount to the PM’s relief fund, writing that this is a time when only the lives of people matter and money gets the second preference. Akshay also wrote that we need to do anything and everything it takes to help out our fellow Indians in this hour of need.
