Mumbai, May 13, 2021: A number of B-town celebrities are doing their bit to help people in their fight against Covid-19 when the country is wrecked by the second wave of the deadly pandemic. But Mrs Funnybones Twinkle Khanna seems to be especially impressed by two Bollywood actors — Hrithik Roshan and Vidya Balan — who are helping people in the Covid-19 but “quietly”.
Twinkle Khanna praise Hrithik Roshan and Vidya Balan
Twinkle Khanna gave a shout out to her handsome “neighbour” Hrithik Roshan on social media for his contribution towards the Covid-19 relief work. She also thanked Vidya Balan for large heart.
Sharing a photo of Hrithik on Instagram, the author and actor wrote, “Going beyond help thy neighbour, mine is doing his bit during this crisis in multiple ways. A big shout-out @hrithikroshan”.
Hrithik Roshan and Vidya Balan quietly helping those in need
At a time when India is witnessing a surge in Covid-19 cases, Twinkle Khanna said that two Bollywood actors, Hrithik Roshan and Vidya Balan are quietly working for coronavirus relief.
She shared a monochrome picture of Vidya Balan with the caption, “Thank you @vidya_balan ! A woman with immense talent and an even larger heart. For quietly helping those in need.”
Fans lauded both the actors’ contribution, with many dropping heart and applause emojis on the posts.
The Shakuntala Devi actor has been spreading awareness around the coronavirus through her social media accounts. She also contributed 1000 Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) kits to the frontline healthcare staff across India.
Twinkle Khanna and Akshay Kumar’s Covid relief
Earlier this month, Twinkle addressed allegations that she and Akshay were not doing enough to ease the impact of the pandemic. A Twitter user wrote to her in Hindi, “Twinkle ji, your husband is among the richest artistes in this country. Rather than pretending to help by collecting donations, it would have been better had your family shown a little more kindness.”
Responding to his tweet, Twinkle wrote that she and Akshay have already done their bit. “Have donated 100 concentrators toward this cause & in multiple other ways. As I’ve said before, it’s not about me or you but what we can do collectively for those in need. Sad that at this point, instead of pitching in, we expend energy in pulling people down. Stay safe,” she wrote.
Twinkle along with husband Akshay have donated 100 oxygen concentrators to an organisation. The actor-turned-writer had shared, “Wonderful news-Dr Drashnika Patel & Dr Govind Bankani of London Elite Health through Daivik Foundation are donating 120 oxygen concentrators and as @akshaykumar and I have managed to get our hands on 100 as well, we have a total of 220.Thank you for the leads. Let’s all do our bit.”
