In the time of the coronavirus crisis, celebrities are coming out to help people affected by the pandemic. They are making donations and announcing it on social media. But, Sonakshi Sinha belongs to the other school of thought. She doesn’t want to declare the donations made by her on public platforms. And that’s what she told the people who trolled her for not donating for the needy.
On Tuesday, Sonakshi Sinha was being trolled for not donating for the cause, while many of her co-stars and industry friends are making huge donations to PM-CARES Fund and Maharashtra CM’s Relief Fund. Sonakshi gave a fitting reply and said, “Neki kar dariya mein daal, suna toh hoga? (Do good and forget about it, must have heard about it?).”
Taking to Twitter late Tuesday, Sonakshi wrote, “Minute of silence for trolls who think that just because it wasn’t announced,contributions weren’t made.Neki kar dariya mein daal,suna toh hoga? Kuch log actually follow karte hai! Ab shaant ho jao & use ur time 2 do some actual good (announcing or not is a personal preference) (sic),” followed by a smiling face emoji.

Earlier, when Amitabh Bachchan was also critised for not donating to help people affected by the crisis, the actor wrote a long post in Hindi. He wrote, “Ek ne diya aur keh diya ke diya, dusre ne diya aur kaha nahi ki diya. Dusri shreni me hi rehne do mujhe ae priyajan. Jise mila wo kya jaane kisne diya, jano uska bus karun krandan. In haalaton mein aur kya kaha jaye. Jo janein mujhe jaanein, mai to sada swabhao se hi raha hu kamsukhan (One gave and said that he did, another gave and did not say that he did. Let me be in the second category. The one who receives knows not who gave it just know his emotions, those who know me, know I have always been one to talk less) (sic).”
