Twinkle Khanna is "proud" of Akshay Kumar, who recently pledged to donate Rs 25 crore to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's relief fund for COVID-19.

The 46-year-old author, in her latest tweet, shared a glimpse of the conversation she had with her actor husband regarding his decision to contribute the money to help other people during the Coronavirus outbreak and said that he makes her "proud."

Twinkle tweeted: "The man makes me proud. When I asked him if he was sure as it was such a massive amount and we needed to liquidate funds, he just said, ' I had nothing when I started and now that I am in this position, how can I hold back from doing whatever I can for those who have nothing'."

Twinkle's appreciation post arrived after Akshay Kumar, on Saturday, pledged the amount to the newly formed PM Modi's Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations Fund (PM-CARES Fund) and tweeted:

"This is that time when all that matters is the lives of our people. And we need to do anything and everything it takes. I pledge to contribute Rs 25 crore from my savings to Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji's PM-CARES Fund. Let's save lives, jaan hai toh jahaan hai."
