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.
When asked about the same, Akshay talked about how they need money along with the medals.
He said, “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 lakhs to each family.”
Akshay who generally refrains from blowing his own trumpet for the charity work he does, further added saying that more people should come forward and continue the noble practice. “Also, I am very glad that they have been noticed by media and they are being recognized. We should continue this practice.”
