Reacting to their tweet, Akshay expressed: “I salute @MumbaiPolice headconstables Chandrakant Pendurkar & Sandip Surve, who laid their lives fighting Corona. I have done my duty, I hope you will too. Let’s not forget we are safe and alive because of them.”

 

Akshay Kumar was the first Bollywood celebrity to donate to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s PM-Cares fund to support the government’s battle against the Covid-19 pandemic. He had donated a sum of Rs 25 crores last month.
