Akshay Kumar is a big-hearted star and always makes donations towards social causes without causing a furore around it. He had already donated towards the care of COVID-19 patients and now, it appears that he has come forward to help again. According to media reports, the actor had come forward to help noted choreographer Ganesh Acharya with monthly ration expenses towards the care of 3600 dancers. A dancer commented that they had the option of choosing the money to be deposited directly in their account or to take a monthly ration kit that would contain essentials for a family of four.
“Akshay has really been kind. It was my 50th birthday yesterday. He asked me what present I would like for the occasion and I asked him if he could help 1600 junior choreographers and aged dancers and about 2000 background dancers with a month’s ration. He readily agreed. My wife is deeply involved in this activity through Ganesh Acharya Foundation. She personally oversees the packing and distribution, which is done areawise and keeping all the health and safety protocols in mind. The dancers and choreographers whose details are registered with us get either the money to afford the basics or a kit that contains the basic essentials to feed a small family unit for a month – the decision is theirs. We have had a system in place for a year now and our logistics are very neatly planned to ensure no one puts themselves in any trouble,” Acharya told a leading daily.
