Actor-turned-author Twinkle Khanna, known for her witty comebacks, took to Twitter on Thursday after a retired IAS officer asked why she was urging others to donate towards COVID-19 relief rather than making donations herself. She quickly responded to the criticism levelled against her and her actor husband Akshay Kumar.

This all started when Mrs Funnybones author shared a tweet, asking people to donate and help an organisation buy oxygen concentrators amid oxygen shortage in the country.

Replying to her tweet, Former IPS officer Surya Pratap Singh wrote in Hindi, “Twinkle ji, your husband is among the richest artistes in this country. Rather than pretending to help by collecting donations, it would have been better had your family shown a little more kindness.”

The former actor responded in no time and wrote, “Have donated 100 concentrators toward this cause&in multiple other http://ways. As I’ve said before,it’s not about me or you but what we can do collectively for those in need.Sad that at this point,instead of pitching in,we expend energy in pulling people down.Stay safe.”

India is currently battling the deadliest second wave of coronavirus and celebrities and leaders across the world are contributing in their own ways to fight this deadly virus.
