Akshay Kumar donates Rs 15 lakh to Delhi girl for heart surgery, her family expresses gratitude

As per ETimes report, Akshay Kumar has donated Rs 15 lakh for the heart transplant of a 25-year-old Delhi girl named Ayushi Sharma, who is now waiting for a donor.

Actor Akshay Kumar has provided financial aid to a needy girl from Delhi. As per ETimes report, the actor has donated Rs 15 lakh for the heart transplant of a 25-year-old Delhi girl named Ayushi Sharma, who is now waiting for a donor.

Speaking with ETimes Yogendra Arun, grandfather of the girl, said that Akshay donated this amount after Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi, his director of 'Samrat Prithviraj', told him about the case. He said, 'I told Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi that I will take the money from Akshay ji but I should be allowed to express my gratitude and that is why I wanted to talk about the large-hearted actor.'

Yogendra Arun mentioned that Ayushi was born with a defect in her heart and now at 25 she was told by doctors of Medanta Hospital in Gurugram that her heart is only 25 percent functional. The doctors suggested that a heart transplant is the only option left for them.

‘Akshay Kumar's help has made it easy for us and we are now looking for a donor heart for the transplant,' he said.

On the work front, Akshay Kumar had a relatively low year with marginal success in his last releases ‘Rakshabandhan’ and ‘Ram Setu’, but this year looks promising for him with big releases such as ‘Selfiee’, ‘OMG2’, and ‘Bade Miyan Chhote Miyan 2’.
