Helped Acid Attack Survivor
This modest actor also donated Rs. 5 lakh to Laxmi Agarwal, a victim of an acid attack after the release of Deepika Padukone’s Chapaak, which was based on Laxmi Agarwal’s life. The Bollywood actor provided timely assistance by contributing the money.
As per reports, Akshay was quoted as saying “My contribution is a very small gesture. I am embarrassed to even mention it. The idea is that Laxmi should be able to search for a job with dignity, without having to worry about paying house rent or stressing about not being able to provide a nutritious meal to her baby.”
Donated for the families of Pulwama attack martyrs
After the Pulwama assault on 14 February 2019, numerous CPRF jawans were neutralised by terrorists, and we lost our valued army officers. Everyone’s heart is broken by this occurrence.

Bharat Ke Veer Initiative
In 2017, Akshay gave Rs 6.5 crores to the Bharat Ke Veer app to aid Jawans who were targeted by terrorists. With the support of the government, Akshay Kumar built this app to assist the families of troops who died defending our country.
Donated To Farmers
