Author, actress and Akshay Kumar‘s wife Twinkle Khanna took to her social media account today to hit back at a user who criticized the couple for Covid-19 donations. A retired IAS officer asked why Twinkle Khanna was urging everyone to donate towards Covid-19 and why wasn’t she focusing on donations herself.

Former officer Surya Pratap Singh took to his Twitter and wrote, “ट्विंकल जी, आपके पतिदेव देश के सबसे अमीर कलाकारों में से हैं, चंदा जुटाकर मदद करने का ड्रामा करने की जगह बेहतर होता की आपका परिवार थोड़ा और दिल बड़ा कर लेता। ये मदद माँगने का नहीं, मदद करने का वक्त है। (Twinkle ji, your husband is among the richest artistes in this country. Rather than pretending to help by collecting donations, it would have been better had your family shown a little more kindness)”

Twinkle, who had just donated 100 oxygen concentrators along with her husband Akshay, replied, “Have donated 100 concentrators toward this cause&in multiple otherways. As I’ve said before,it’s not about me or you but what we can do collectively for those in need.Sad that at this point,instead of pitching in,we expend energy in pulling people down.Stay safe.”

In an earlier Instagram post, Twinkle had talked about donating oxygen concentrators due to the current crisis, she wrote, “Wonderful news-Dr Drashnika Patel & Dr Govind Bankani of London Elite Health through Daivik Foundation are donating 120 oxygen concentrators and as @akshaykumar and I have managed to get our hands on 100 as well, we have a total of 220. Thank You for the leads. Let’s all do our bit (sic)”
