Guwahati: Bollywood superstar, who is known for his action and comedy in reel life and putting his forefront of various social initiatives to uplift the lives of people in his real life has once again come forward to support a noble cause.
The Khiladi Kumar has donated Rs. 1.5 crore for building homes for transgenders in Chennai.
He will be seen playing a transgender person in Raghava Lawrence’s Laxmmi Bomb. The film’s director took his social media Facebook page to share the news with his fans.
On his post, the filmmaker wrote, “I would like to share one good news, Akshay Kumar sir is donating Rs 1.5 crore for building transgender home for the first time in India.” He added, “During Laxmmi Bomb shoot I was talking to Akshay Kumar sir about the trust projects and transgender’s home, immediately after hearing this without even me asking he told he will donate Rs 1.5 core for building transgender’s home.”
Raghava Lawrence heads a charitable trust named after him. On completing 15 years since its foundation, the filmmaker wanted to celebrate by “initiating a new project for uplifting transgenders by providing shelter for them.”
On his recent post, he added, “I consider everyone who helps as God, so now Akshay Kumar sir is a God for us. I thank him for lending his huge support for this project. Our trust next vision is to uplift transgenders and provide shelter for them all over India with Akshay Kumar sir’s support. I thank him in behalf of all transgenders. We will inform the bhoomi pooja date soon. I need all your blessing.”
Last year, Akshay Kumar donated Rs. 1 crore each to the Assam CM relief fund and Kaziranga National Park after the raging floodwaters wreaked havoc in Assam. To the contrary, he has always come forward to support noble causes.
