Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar and his writer wife Twinkle Khanna have decided to donate hundred oxygen tanks to a local Indian organisation amid surge in Covid-19 cases across the country, reported The Indian Express.

Twinkle took the matter to social media to share the news. She tweeted, “Wonderful news! Dr Drashnika Patel and Dr Govind Bankani of London Elite Health, through Daivik Foundation, are donating 120 oxygen concentrators and as Akshay Kumar and I have managed to get our hands on 100 as well, we have a total of 220. Thank you for the leads! Let’s all do our bit.”

Fellow actors, publicists and fans appreciated the Mrs Funnybones author for her efforts while she urged other celebrities to also contribute to this noble cause of helping others as well. The actor-turned-writer also shared the news on Instagram and added, “I think, for the last few weeks, with members of my own family ill, I have been in a bit of a hole. But I couldn’t stay there for long. I implore all of you in your own way to do whatever you can so we can look back at this bleak moment and at least say it took the worst but it brought out the best in all of us. #ILookForSilverLinings.”

Akshay, on the other hand, recently pledged INR1 crore to former cricketer and politician Gautam Gambhir’s charitable foundation that has been working on helping those affected by coronavirus too. On the work front, the Pad Man actor has Atrangi Re, Ram Setu and Bell Bottom in the pipeline for this year whereas for Twinkle, none of her upcoming endeavors have been revealed as of yet. But the Pyjamas Are Forgiving writer has been active on social media, bringing light into our lives with her quirkiness and takes on fashion.
