Bollywood Star Akshay Kumar Donates Rs 1.5 Crores for Transgender Home

Bollywood's Akshay Kumar has announced he is donating Rs 1.5 crores to help build a home for transgender people in Chennai.

Kumar, who will play the role of a transgender in the upcoming film Laxmmi Bomb, made the donation to the film's director Raghava Lawrence after being inspired by his work with his own foundation, The Lawrence Charitable Trust, which has been initiating various projects for education and homes for children.

The move has been praised by many including businessman Anand Mahindra tweeting his respect for Kumar while Raghava Lawrence thanked him for lending his huge support.

Akshay Kumar has three films lined up for 2020. The actor will next be seen in Rohit Shetty's cop universe saga Sooryavanshi, followed by horror-comedy Laxmmi Bomb and he will be ending the year with historical drama Prithviraj based on the heroic Prithviraj Chauhan.
