Mumbai: Akshay Kumar might call himself the ‘lowest paid actor’ in Bollywood but that doesn’t seem to limit his generosity. The actor, who is known for his charitable work, has donated a whopping sum of Rs 50 lakhs for Salman Khan’s charity organization ‘Being Human’. What’s more is that Akshay intends to double this amount before the year ends. And Salman is much too touched by Akshay’s sweet gesture.
Confirming the news, a source said, “For years, Akshay has been working for various causes. But he has always been wary of transferring funds to charitable institutions. Now in Being Human, Akshay has found a charitable trust that he can trust.”
However there is another side to Akki’s sudden generosity. As per reports, Akshay’s decision to donate such a big amount stems from the fact that Salman did a cameo in his co-production, ‘Tees Maar Khan’, free of cost.
And post Salman’s act, Akshay told Salman of his availability for any event related to ‘Being Human’. The actor has reportedly told Sallu, “Bas mujhe bolna aur main haazir ho jaaonga.”
