However, amid this, an old video of fake news of Shah Rukh Khan donating Rs 45 crore to Pakistan gas tanker accident victims is going viral again.

Here's the truth behind the viral video:

However, we all know that the King of Romance has been making us proud through his films and by being a generous human being. Hence, the video going viral right now makes no sense, especially knowing that he is the pride of India. SRK also has maintained in his interviews that in Islam one does not and one should not talk about charity (donations made for his fellow citizens). In fact, he is one of the actors who received Padma Shri award from the President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam in New Delhi on March 28, 2005. Below is the video where SRK firmly clearly states that he is proud to be an Indian.

Check out this video.

As we mentioned above, Amitabh Bachchan donated Rs 5 lakh to each family of the CRPF Martyrs. Also, Akshay asked the netizens to donate money via official website. He also warned the fans that there are fake sites out there and hence donate only in the mentioned site as there is only one site created for the purpose.
