In an Instagram post on Tuesday, Twinkle Khanna announced that she and Akshay Kumar have donated 100 Oxygen concentrators in the fight against the deadly pandemic and wrote: “I think for the last few weeks with members of my own family ill I have been in a bit of a hole. But I couldn’t stay there for long.”

Akshay Kumar was filming forthcoming project Ram Setu when he tested positive for the coronavirus. On April 4, he tweeted: “I wish to inform everyone that, earlier this morning, I have tested positive for COVID-19. Following all the protocols, I have immediately isolated myself. I’m under home quarantine and have sought necessary medical care.”
The actor was later admitted to a hospital for COVID-19 treatment. He tested negative for the virus a week later and then returned home from the hospital.
A few days ago, Akshay Kumar donated Rs 1 crore to former cricketer Gautam Gambhir’s Delhi-based NGO to help those who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. He had contributed Rs 25 crore to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s relief fund called PM-CARES last year too.
