Under Sanskar Bharti campaign 'Peer Parai Jaane Re', actor Akshay Kumar has donated Rs 50 lakh to help the artists whose livelihood got affected due to coronavirus pandemic. Akshay even recorded a video message to urge people to do their bit to help the needy in such trying times.


"The corona epidemic has created financial problems in front of the artists, and they don't have work from the last 2 years. The artist always stands for the country when needed, and I believe in this crucial time our people will come forward and stand with the artists," he said in the video.
