“I Didn’t Mean Akshay Kumar,” Shatrughn Sinha Clarifies



Shatrughan Sinha

A statement  about stars vulgarizing charity by flaunting it, has put Shatrughan Sinha  in  the  hot spot.

In a interview with me  he  said, “It is  downright  offensive  and demoralizing  to hear someone  has  contributed Rs 25 crores. Is  this  to  say,  you are  going judge  an individual’s volume  of concern  for the current crisis  by  the amount of  money he  gives away?  In no part of  the world do celebrities flaunt  the amount they give for charity. Charitable   causes are always  a private  affair.”

Everyone  assumed that   the  unstoppable politician-actor  was  referring to Akshay Kumar. And  there  is  much resentment  among Akshay’s fans and well-wishers.

Clarifies Shatruji, “When I made that  statement I  didn’t have Akshay Kumar  in mind. People  came to their own conclusion  because Akshay has given 25  crores  for  the virus-affected. I would  never  target  Akshay  for any taunt. He is not only my daughter Sonakshi’s leading man but also  a dear family  friend. We  visit one  another socially.”

SSS says he has the  highest  admiration for  Akshay. “He is constantly tapping into his  stardom to do  good for  the  needy and the  underprivileged . Whenever  there is a  cause he’s always  at the  forefront to help. His generosity and concern  for  the  downtrodden is an example to all of us.”
