A few months ago, Akshay Kumar had donated money to drought affected villages. As the farmers’ suicides kept increasing, Akshay donated around Rs. 90 lakhs for the drought relief fund in Marathwada.
Now, we hear that Akshay Kumar is planning to adopt a village in the Yavatmal district of the state affected by drought. After an instruction was received from Maharashtra government, Collector Sachindra Pratap Singh signed a proposal made by the Chetana Abhiyan Project director and Resident District Collector (RDC) Rajesh Khawle. According to him, Akshay Kumar had recently met the state Finance Minister Sudhir Mungantiwar in Mumbai where he was briefed about the condition of the farmers in Vidarbha, especially in Yavatmal.
However, Akshay Kumar isn’t the only one who is likely to adopt a village. In the recent past, Aamir Khan and Nana Patekar have also taken the initiative, adopted some villages and given them financial help.
