Akshay Kumar offers financial aid to Mumbai’s iconic Gaiety-Galaxy theatre amid coronavirus lockdown.
While the whole country is under lockdown due to coronavirus, life has become difficult for the common man. People are facing hell lot of difficulties during this tough time. There are crores of Indians who are still not able to arrange bread and butter. During this critical time, our Bollywood celebrities are extending a helping hand to the people in need.
From Akshay, Salman, Shahrukh to young stars, Bollywood celebrities have come forward at the time when their support is much needed. After donating Rs 25 crore to the PM CARES Fund and Rs 3 crore to BMC, superstar Akshay Kumar has now offered help to a Mumbai theatre. Akshay has extended his help to the owner of Mumbai’s iconic theatres, Gaiety Galaxy, Manoj Desai.
Speaking to Midday Manoj Desai said, “Three days ago, I got a call from Akshayji. He offered to provide financial assistance if the scenario continues. It was kind of him to offer help, but we should find a way to sustain ourselves. We have managed to collect enough funds to pay the salaries for this month, but the theatre shutdown will have long-term ramifications. Our focus is to ensure we don’t trim staff or resort to pay cuts.”
Akshay Kumar has been on the forefront ever since coronavirus came into the picture. He is doing his bit to raise awareness among people to stay home amid coronavirus lockdown.
On the work front, Akshay will be next seen in Rohit Shetty cop drama ‘Sooryavanshi’. The film was scheduled to hit the screens on 24 March, but the lockdown forced the film to postpone. Post lockdown, Rohit Shetty is expected to announce a new release date. Directed by Rohit Shetty, the film also features Katrina Kaif and cameos by Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh.
