In the second wave of Covid-19 in India, many celebs have come forward to help the affected ones. From Sonu Sood, Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar to Shilpa Shetty, Bhumi Pednekar, many have helped the Covid-19 victims and their dear ones. Akshay Kumar comes forward to help 3600 dancers with monthly ration. He has stepped forward to help choreographer Ganesh Acharya with monthly ration expenses for these dancers whose details have been registered with Ganesh’s foundation.

Ganesh told ETimes, “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.”

Ganesh also said that his wife is deeply involved in this activity through Ganesh Acharya Foundation and she looks after the packing and distribution, keeping in mind all the health and safety protocols.

“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,” said the choreographer.

Recently, Akshay and Twinkle Khanna donated 100 oxygen concentrators to save Covid-19 patients’ lives. The Sooryavanshi actor had also donated Rs 1 crore to Gautam Gambhir’s foundation to help the Covid-19 victims.
