Twinkle Khanna responds to a netizen who alleged she and Akshay Kumar are not doing enough amid pandemic

Actress-turned-author Twinkle Khanna has now taken to Twitter to respond to criticism levelled against her and her superstar husband Akshay Kumar. A Twitter user, a retired IAS officer, had asked her to donate the money herself instead of asking others to donate for COVID-19 relief funds when her husband, Akshay, is among the richest people in the country. The tweet which is originally in Hindi, reads, '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.' Twinkle, who is outspoken, responded by saying that she and Akshay are already doing what is needed to help others. She wrote, '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.' Twinkle had in an earlier Instagram post shared that she and Akshay had donated oxygen concentrators. She wrote, '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.' She captioned the post, '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. I implore all of you in your own way to do whatever you can so we can look back at this bleak moment and at least say it took the worst but it brought out the best in all of us. #ILookForSilverLinings' Akshay had also donated Rs 1 crore to former cricketer turned politician Gautam Gambhir's foundation to help with COVID-19 relief materials.
