If you ask anyone that who is the real hero of Bollywood who instigated a feeling of patriotism in us. Then you will get the instant reply “Akshay Kumar”. Whether it be ‘Baby’, ‘Holiday’ or ‘Airlift’ or ‘Rustom; all of these movies of Akshay Kumar were based on patriotism.
Not only on screen, off screen also he is a true patriot. And apart from his patriotism, he has done many things for which he deserves the respect. Last Year, he has donated money to drought-hit farmers of Maharashtra. And yet again he extended his supporting hands to our Army Jawans. He has donated Rs. 80 Lakhs to our soldiers.
According to a report in TOI, Akshay recently helped the family of Jawans with a monetary help of Rs 80 lakhs and it only shows the amount of gratitude Akshay has for our soldiers. He donated Rs. 5 Lakh to each soldier’s family.
When asked about the same, Akshay was quoted by the daily as:
“Main yeh samajhta hun ki ham un logon ka samman karte hai. They are decorated with lot of medals and that is good. But I looked at their faces. The samman was required for them but they need money too. You have to be practical. I thought how about giving them money and that is when I decided to give 5 lacs to each family.”
