Fact Check:

Some messages spread on social media allege to show Ambani Family Donates 500 Crore Rupees for Construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. Others claim to show Bollywood hero Akshay Kumar Donate 10 Crore rupees for Ram Mandir. Accompanying picture(s) shows Mukesh Ambani meeting Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Akshay Kumar meeting Indian PM Narendra Modi. No, both the claims in circulation are not true.

Did Ambani Family Donate 500 Crores for Ram Mandir Construction?

Firstly, the claims are doing rounds on social media without citing any source of information. Moreover, there are no credible reports about any such donation from Ambani family, an elite personality in India. Coming to the picture in circulation, it is in fact an old one from December 2017 when Yogi Adityanath campaigned for UP Investors’ Summit 2018. Apart from Mukesh Ambani, Ratan Tata also met him. Yogi Adityanath shared the photograph of Ambani on his Twitter account also.

Did Akshay Kumar Donate 10 Crore?

On the other hand, there are also stories about Akshay Kumar donating a huge amount for construction of Ram Mandir after the historic judgement in Ayodhya. The Bollywood hero is known for his social and charitable work. However, there are no credible reports of any such donation from him either. The accompanying picture is when Akshay Kumar met PM Narendra Modi in June 2017 to tell him about his upcoming movie Toilet Ek Prem Katha, which goes with the Government programme Swachh Bharat mission.

The story about Akshay Kumar’s 10 Crore donation appears to have originated from a Facebook post in Hindi also showing an image of the Cheque.

The ICICI Bank cheque carries the name of “Odisha Chief Minister’s Relief Fund” and is for 1 Crore only, unlike the claim. The date on cheque is 6th May 2019 – long before the Supreme Court judgment declared construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. Moreover, the signature on the cheque does not match with Akshay Kumar’s original one available on Wikipedia.

So, it’s a fake cheque circulating online with another fabricated story of donation towards construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya.

Hoax or Fact:

Hoax.
