According to a report published in Hindustan Times, Akshay Kumar donated Rs 1 crore to the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund to help the victims of the deadly Cyclone Fani revive their lives.

2 crores to Assam Flood Relief:
More than 45 lakh people have been affected in 4,620 villages, with 1,01,085 people taking shelter in 226 relief camps. As many as 562 distribution centres have been established to provide relief to the less unfortunate ones and over 10 lakh animals have also been affected.
