Cyclone FANI Aftermath: Bollywood Actor Akshay Kumar Donates Rs 1 Cr To Odisha

07 May 2019


Bhubaneswar: Soon after the Odisha Government officially issued two SBI bank accounts yesterday and urged the generous public for donation to the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund, Bollywood super star Akshay Kumar has promptly responded to the earnest appeal.

As a mark of his magnanimous gesture towards the State and its people hit hard by devastating Cyclone FANI last week on May 4, the Hindi film actor has donated a cheque carrying Rs 1 crore for the ongoing relief and restoration work.

Much earlier to the Odisha Government’s general appeal for donation, Nobel laureate and world-renowned spiritual leader Dalai Lama on May 5 has already donated Rs 1,000,000 from the Dalai Lama Trust. 

Notably, Odisha Government yesterday issued two SBI bank accounts for the donation purpose and the two accounts are: 

 11109339165, IFSC Code: SBIN0010236

10566116417, IFSC Code: SBIN0006606
