Akshay Kumar: From Reel to Social Hero

In the recent times, Akshay Kumar has become synonymous with films that carry a social message. The list of such films is endless and include popular hits like Baby (on terrorism), Gabbar is Back (fighting corruption), Oh My God (fighting blind faith and superstition), Airlift (patriotic), and now Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. Our very own ‘Khiladi’ Kumar has come a long way from being an out-and-out romantic or action hero. Apart from this, his charismatic personality and urge to do things beyond his own imagination, he has gradually been transformed into an actor that stands for a cause. Don’t be amazed at that. Here are the list of things the actor is indulged into and that makes him a true patriot.

Once a Hero always a Hero!
The veteran actor is not just a hero in reel life, but in real life too. He is one of the few actors who have given credence to the phrase ‘responsible citizen,’ as was acknowledged for several deeds on social front. For example, he was once applauded for walking out of his car during a traffic jam to stop a person from littering the road! Not only this, Akshay, unlike many of his actor colleagues is known as the sincerest taxpayers of the country with over Rs 20 crores paid in taxes. Bravo!

#1 Bharat Ke Veer – An App Catering to Financial Help for the Families of Martyred Indian Soldiers
One of the most talked about and well received initiative from Akshay, ‘Bharat Ke Veer,’ has given families of the martyred Indian soldiers a privilege to stand independent on financial grounds in the absence of their loved ones. The application allows anyone to donate any amount via this application for the welfare of the families of soldiers who lost their lives during war or while on duties. The donated amount is then transferred to the account of the martyred soldier’s family in need.

#2 Insurance Scheme Initiative for the Unspoken Heroes of Bollywood
The thought to help the needy in need has always been part of Akshay’s nature. Thus, with the initiative of an insurance scheme for stunt artistes of Bollywood, the artist has proved it yet again. Besides, he supported PM Modi’s clarion call to give water to birds and animals during summer. The actor, thereafter posted a video of his daughter feeding milk in a bowl to a thirsty cat on a social media site.

#3 Martial Arts School – An Initiative for Making Women Self Defendant
Yet another cause for which Akshay is known for is Martial Arts. His initiative to make women fight against odd challenges at odd hours via institution that is run for free has helped a lot of women to transform into iron pillars in today’s unpredictable world. His dedication to the martial arts is what has driven him throughout and still keeps him fighting fit even at the age of (47), inspiring many youths to pursue the same.

From the busy streets of Chandni Chowk in Delhi, to being a chef in Bangkok, Akshay has been through the grind of life and has stood steady with head strong to inspire millions of youth today. It is notable that in the nepotism-ridden Bollywood, Akshay was a total outsider but still managed to make a mark in the industry without any godfather. The veteran actor cum socialite, despite all the successes remains humble, grounded and dedicated to his art. That surely makes sense to raise a toast to all your Efforts and contributions made in our society Akshay!



Actually, Vinay is a writer by chance and writing is one of his passion. He love to pen down his thoughts in the form of blogs/articles & forums. He is a poet too :) Despite having a tough life, he is also passionate about the social relationship and he loves to interact with the new crowd across the globe.
