According to a report in Mid-Day, Akshay has once again set an example by helping the BMC financially and also by creating awareness on his own social media handles by making various videos about the cause. The report mentioned an official from the BMC saying the actor has been helping them without any fanfare for the last few days. He said when Akshay got to know that India is facing a rising demand to produce PPE, he decided to make the financial contributions. “Through his social media videos, Akshay has been creating awareness about social distancing and the need to stay home. When it came to his notice that India, like other countries, is racing to produce PPE to meet the rising demand, he pitched in financial support,” the BMC official said.
