Mumbai : The 'Khiladi' of Bollywood, actor Akshay Kumar will give the financially help to 30 farmers of Maharashtra, who had committed suicide due to the acute agrarian crisis in the state.

Akshay Kumar had planned to financially help 180 families of farmers, who had committed suicide due to the acute agrarian crisis in Maharashtra. Reports revealed a few days ago.

Maharashtra is currently facing one of its worst droughts. It was also reported that the actor had donated Rs 90 lakh to some such families. However, not many know that the star has been assisting these families with financial aid for the past three-four months now.

According the report published in HT, "Akshay has been setting aside amounts ranging from Rs 50,000 to Rs 1 lakh per family for a few months. This money is sent to almost 30 families. And, this is not something that he has been doing in tandem with an NGO. His team has been directly involved and in touch with these families."

Apparently, after doing some research in the region, Akshay’s team made a list of farmers who were in dire need of assistance. In a systematic manner, every month, his team travels to the interiors of the state to disburse the money.

According the source, Apart from Akshay, Nana Patekar is another Bollywood actor, who has been helping these distressed farmers. We contacted Akshay for a comment, but he refused to talk about the matter. "He feels embarrassed. You will never hear him discuss these matters openly"
