Akshay Kumar is known for being a people’s person. He always speaks his mind and does whatever is right. This time, he has helped an old friend get a kidney transplant done.

Sanyog Shrivastava, brother of Akshay’s friend Ravi Shrivastava appealed to the star via Twitter, seeking help for Ravi, who is in distress. Akki noticed the tweet and immediately reached out to them. Ravi Shrivastava used to be a film producer and publicity designer in the 90s. He produced ‘Dwarpaal’ in 1991, which was supposed to be Akshay Kumar’s debut film but unfortunately did not get to see the light of the day. He has also designed posters for movies like ‘Biwi Ho To Aisi,’ ‘Teri Meherbaniyan,’ ‘Hukumat,’ ‘Tehelka’. However, despite being a part of almost 250 films, he is living a life of poverty and is unable to afford a kidney transplant, which costs around Rs 15 lakh to 17 lakhs.
Akshay Kumar yet again proves that he has a heart of gold! Isn’t it?
Yes sir, my team has reached out to him…already taken care of 🙏🏻 https://t.co/14w1oS3k9d
