Even at the time of Rustom’s promotions, Akshay Kumar had said that he would have served the nation but he ended up becoming an actor. But whenever it comes to help to Jawaans, Akshay has always been able to do. In one of his interviews during the promotion, he had 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 has always been donating the money to the jawans. He has acted in many Bollywood blockbusters featuring the country’s defence forces to depict their sacrifices and the extremely difficult conditions under which they guard the frontiers of the country.

On the work front, Akshay is currently preparing for his 2017 release — GOLD. The movie will be helmed by Reema Kagti and produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akthar.
