Akshay has always been on frontline when it comes to charity during tough times. He has been an inspiration for other celebrities. He said, “Main kaun hota hoon ‘charity’ ya ‘donate’ karne waala?. Doosri baat ki hum apni country ko Bharat Maa kehte hain. Mera ye contribution actually mera nahi hai. Yeh meri maa ki taraf se Bharat Maa ko hai.”
Akshay also focussed on Senior citizens health during the coronavirus pandemic. He said, “It’s important that I refer to my mother here because poori duniya mein ek fear hai that senior citizens will be ignored and left to themselves during this coronavirus crisis. Hum yeh soch bhi kaise sakte hain. Meri maa ki jaan important hai, aapke maa baap ki jaan important hai. No matter who we are, trying to save every single life is critical right now. Maine sirf iski taraf apna ek chhotta sa farz ada kiya hai”
