In an online statement, the actor-choreographer-director said, “Hai friends and fans, As we are in the midst of this global health crisis I would like to convey my wishes to our Tamil Nadu government and health department for taking the precautionary measures seriously and serving the best awareness and knowledge all our Tamil Nadu.
As we all know a higher ratio has been affected globally by COVID-19. Tamil Nadu has reported less cases and has been prevented well. When we all are raising questions to the government when something goes wrong, we also need to acknowledge the good things and convey our thanks to them which will make them do better.
At this moment I would like to thank our Honourable Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami sir and our Health Minister C. Vijayabaskar sir. More than seeing this as a political view, it’s important for us to support each other and stay strong together. Everyone, Please take all the precautionary safety measures.”
Raghava Lawrence is currently directing Laxmi Bomb, the HIndi remake of his Kanchana. The film stars Akshay Kumar, Kiara Advani, Tusshar Kapoor, Sharad Kelkar, Ashwini Kalsekar and Tarun Arora in pivotal roles.
Recently, Akshay Kumar has donated Rs 1.5 crore for building home for transgenders, an initiative started by his Laxmmi Bomb director Raghav Lawrence’s charitable trust.
Lawrence posted on Facebook: “Our trust is now entering into its 15th year. We wanted to celebrate this 15th year by initiating a new project for uplifting transgenders by providing shelter for them. Our trust has provided the land and we were looking forward to raise funds for the building, so during Laxmmi Bomb shoot I was talking to Akshay sir about the trust projects and transgender’s home, immediately after hearing this without even me asking he told he will donate 1.5 cores for building transgender’s home.
I consider everyone who helps as god, so now Akshay kumar sir is a god for us. I thank him for lending his huge support for this project. Our trust’s next vision is to uplift transgenders and provide shelter for them all over India with Akshay Kumar’s sir support. I thank him in behalf of all transgenders.”
