The destruction that took place in Odisha last week due to the severe cyclonic storm ‘Fani’ sent the entire country into gloom with loss of so many precious lives. Help has been pouring in from various quarters in this time of crisis, and actor Akshay Kumar has been one of the helping hands.
According to reports, the actor donates Rs 1 Crore to the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund to help the victims of the deadly Cyclone Fani rebuild their lives.

“This is not new. Akshay has always been contributing for causes, be it his Bharat ke Veer initiative for the armed forces, or his contribution to the Kerala Floods or Chennai floods earlier,” an industry source told Hidustantimes.com.
Cyclone Fani hit Odisha on Friday (May 3), causing massive damage and leaving the coastal state grappling with water shortage and power cuts. At least 34 people were killed, including 21 from Puri district.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Akshay will be next seen in Good News with Kareena Kapoor and Dijit Dosanjh. Apart from this, the actor also has films like Housefull 4 and Misson Mangal in his kitty.
