Due to the outbreak of Coronavirus, several Bollywood celebs had come forward to pledge their support to the country’s fight against the pandemic. Akshay Kumar was the first B-town actor to announce that he is donating Rs. 25 crores to PM Cares Fund. Now veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha has said that it is offensive and demoralizing to announce charity.

Speaking to Bollywood Hungama, the veteran actor said, “It is downright offensive and demoralizing to hear someone has contributed Rs. 25 crores. Is this to say, you are going judge an individual’s volume of concern for the current crisis by the amount of money he gives away? In no part of the world do celebrities flaunt the amount they give for charity. Charitable causes are always a private affair. I fear showbiz is now in the danger of collapse, so now we have it being replaced by show-off biz.”

He further added, “When I hear someone has given Rs. 25 crores I wonder if the amount I will give is of any use. Stop it! Everyone is doing their best. Don’t make this into a ‘mine-is-bigger-than-yours’ school-boys’ competition.”

While Sinha didn’t specifically mention Akshay Kumar‘s name, but its clearly evident who he was hinting at. A few days back, even Sonakshi Sinha had said that she doesn’t believe about talking or flaunting how much she has donated for Coronavirus relief fund or for any charity for that matter.

Sinha also commented that while PM’s decision of lockdown has saved us but it came too late. He also emphasised that ground-level workers of the film industry are going to suffer even after lockdown ends. The actor urged people to first ensure these workers have food on their table. “But please, pehle kuch karen. Phir usske baare mein showoff karenge,” he signed off.
