Superstar Akshay Kumar has just declared to donate Rs 25 crore to the relief fund of coronavirus created by PM Narendra Modi and said that his mother wanted to do it.

As one of the top actors who always head for volunteering and donation to support the nation, Akshay Kumar has been known for his golden heart whenever India falls into a cataclysm. The actor also did the same to the coronavirus pandemic when he vowed to contribute to PM Narendra Modi's relief fund of coronavirus with Rs 25 crore.

The warm-hearted superstar shared the news in a tweet and wrote:

In a recent interview with Hindustan Times about his contribution, Akshay expressed:

"You can call it my weakness or whatever, but I am never able to express my feelings or thoughts behind gestures of contributing to a cause. Main kaun hota hoon 'charity' yah 'donate karne waala? Doosri beat ki hum apni country ko Bharat Maa kehte hain. Mera yeh contribution actually mera nahi hai. Yeh meri maa ki taraf se Bharat Maa ko hai."

What he meant is that he didn't make any big thing to the donation, it's not him who contributed as this is action from his mother to Bharat Maa. He continued his saying that he thought everyone's lives are important and he and the others are trying to save lives in this difficult time.

Well noting on Akshay's act, Prime Minister expressed his gratitude to the Mission Mangal actor and encouraged more great gestures for a 'healthier India'. On the other hand, the actor's wife Twinkle Khanna also poured her heart for him and wrote:

"The man makes me proud. When I asked him if he was sure as it was such a massive amount and we needed to liquidate funds, he just said, 'I had nothing when I started and now that I am in this position, how can I hold back from doing whatever I can for those who have nothing'."
