Akshay Kumar is undoubtedly the ‘Khiladi’ of Bollywood and the superstar stays true to the title. Recently, he has donated money to the victims of the Uri attack.
For the unaware, seventeen soldiers were killed in a militant attack in the Uri area of Baramulla district on Sunday morning. The 18th September dated attack at Uri is perhaps one of the worst Pakistani attack on Indian soldiers.
And like always, Akki has won hearts by his kind act of helping the families of Uri attack martyrs. Akshay has issued cheques of Rs 5-10 lakhs for each of the martyr’s families.
Akshay had earlier at the time of the Rio Olympics 2016 had spoken about the importance of rewarding our unsung heroes with money. “A medal or an award is good but not enough. More needs to be done for them and their families. They need money too,” the lion-hearted Khiladi had said.
Rohit, whose younger brother Rockey, a Border Security Force constable, died fighting terrorists during the Udhampur terrorist attack in 2015 spoke highly of the actor. “It’s a great step from Akshay’s side because he is the only actor who thought about us and what a family goes through when a soldier dies for the country. We felt really nice that at least someone spared some time for us,” he said.
