Akshay Kumar’s Request Led to the Fetching of 12.93 Crores!

January 25th, 2018
Actor Akshay Kumar is known for his humanitarian values and his massive gesture to postpone the release of his film ‘PadMan’, so that Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat can get a solo release, is drawing affection from all quarters.
Last year in April, the Home Minister launched 'Bharat Ke Veer'- a website and mobile application portal to enable willing donors to provide financial assistance to martyr's families.
It was actor Akshay Kumar's idea and it received a towering response from everyone.

Akshay was present at the Teen Murti Bhawan in Delhi on Saturday morning for the launch of an anthem for the ‘Bharat Ke Veer’ website which is an initiative that allows people to transfer money directly into the bank accounts of the next of kin of martyred Indian soldiers.

To everyone’s surprise, he went on stage unrehearsed and vocalized his thoughts,
“I am willing to dance, sing, do anything that you’d like me to, but let us collect the maximum for the welfare of the families of those who sacrificed their lives for us.”

The launch was presided by Home Minister Rajnath Singh and was also attended by the National Security Adviser Ajit Doval and the singer of the anthem Kailash Kher!
Rajnath Singh urged the audience, which included various influential personalities of India, to donate as much as they can.

When he became aware that his impromptu gesture has garnered almost 13 crores within a few minutes of his speech, he was quoted saying,
“I am so touched by the response. I just feel there is no greater cause than working for the welfare of the families of our brave soldiers. I am glad we could raise this amount.”

More power to Akshay Kumar from our end because it is not everyday that we see Indian celebrities making the best use of their power for the welfare of our country!
