Akshay Kumar donates Rs. 2 crore to Mumbai Police Foundation

As India continues to fight the coronavirus, the country’s key service providers have been working effortlessly to fight the pandemic and save lives.

Amongst these workers are Mumbai’s police force who have been keeping the city safe by staying out on the front line. However, this has resulted in the deaths of Head Constables Chandrakant Pendurkar and Sandip Surve who both died from the virus by risking their lives to save others

This spurred international superstar Akshay Kumar into action, who has regularly been at the forefront of campaigns to help those affected by the coronavirus in India.

The ‘Sooryavanshi’ star, who has played a police officer in a number of blockbusters, has donated to Rs 2 crore (£212,624) to the Mumbai Police Foundation to show his gratitude to the men and women in the police force as well as pay tribute to its fallen officers.

Mumbai Police thanked Akshay Kumar on Twitter, which read:
