With the second wave hitting India, the country is battling the second wave of Coronavirus again. There has been a lot of scarcity in terms of equipments, oxygen, beds in the country and this is where Bollywood celebrities have offered a helping hand to patients and frontline workers in need of aid. Numerous other actors like Bhumi Pednekar, Priyanka Chopra, Sonam Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, and Alia Bhatt and are amplifying resources needed by people across the country on their respective social media handles.

While there’s news about everyone donating for the cause, Twinkle Khanna and Akshay Kumar recently made headlines after the two managed to arrange 100 oxygen concentrators amid the ongoing crisis. The stars received compliments from their fans on social media after they partook in humanitarian work. However, a former IAS officer has criticized the couple on Twitter for collecting donations and alleged that they weren’t doing enough. Twinkle responded to the user by explaining how she has been actively contributing to the cause. She tweeted, “Have donated 100 concentrators toward this cause & in multiple other ways,” she wrote and further elaborated how helping people in need during the pandemic is a collective cause. “Sad, that at this point, instead of pitching in, we expend energy in pulling people down. Stay safe,” she continued. 

Akshay recently donated Rs. 1 crore as Covid relief to Gautam Gambhir Foundation. This is after Akshay had recently tested positive and now recovered from COVID 19. Since then has been staying indoors and to make sure he’s getting better and stronger soon. On the other hand, Twinkle has earlier tweeted about making the aforementioned contribution to an organization.
