Akshay Kumar: Show concern for martyrs’ families, argue later


In the wake of the Uri terror attack, everyone, including celebrities and political figures have been arguing amongst themselves about an impending war and ban on Pakistani artistes working in India. Amidst all this, Akshay Kumar has urged people to argue later and show concern for the families of martyred soldiers.

Unhappy over the turn of events post the dastardly attacks in Uri army base, Akshay posted a strong-worded video message, in which the actor has hit out at politicians and people who are constantly insisting for a proof of surgical strike by the Army across the Line of Control (LoC).

The actor at first clears that he is not speaking as a star or a celebrity, but as an army man’s son. For some days he has been noticing in news and newspapers that people of the country are arguing amongst themselves. Some are asking for proof of surgical strikes, some are either asking for a ban on Pakistani actors or opposing it, while some are worried that a war might happen.

Akshay says that rather than worrying about these issues, one should be more worried about the future of the families of the soldiers who laid their lives fighting for the country. He said that the families of the martyrs are at present not concerned about the release of a Bollywood movie.

“19 jawans were killed in Uri. 24-year-old soldier Nitin Yadav died in Baramulla. Are the families of these soldiers worried about whether a film would be released or an artist would be banned or not? All that they are thinking about now is their future and our concern is their present and future welfare. India and all of us exist because they are there,” the actor says in the video.

Akshay, who has played the role of a soldier in many of his films is the son of a military officer. He alo recently donated money to the families of the martyred soldiers.
