However, this does not go well with some of the netizens who objected on the use of the word ‘donate’ as the veteran actress is not giving the amount from her pocket. “Donating, isn't that allocation?”, wrote one of the users.

Kirron Kher is currently battling multiple myeloma, a cancer of plasma cells and is undergoing treatment. Earlier this month, her husband, actor Anupam Kher had shared her health update on social media. But now speaking about his wife, the actor said, "Kirron is improving. She is better but the medicines of multiple myeloma have many side effects. She is good spirits and hopefully she will come out of it. If your prayers are with her, everything will be fine."
