“I do not hold God ransom to my success; whatever is his will is my way. I stand by moments. I do not stand by time.”- Akshay Kumar
From a waiter at a restaurant in Bangkok to the Khiladi of Bollywood, Akshay Kumar’s journey to success is phenomenal. Without having any godfather in the film industry, Akshay Kumar has tasted super success after super failure. Here are 5 reasons to respect Mr. Khiladi-
Akshay Kumar knows it well how to give it back to the society. He launched an initiative for free of cost martial arts training to visually-impaired girls. Not only this, he is also doing a commendable job by imparting self-defence training to women in his martial arts school in suburban Mumbai. Let us tell you a secret, he learned martial art to impress a girl but eventually he started loving martial arts more than the girl and it became his habit!
2. A true Patriot
Akshay Kumar believes that it is not just government’s responsibility to stand up for the welfare of the brave soldiers and their families. He turned this idea into reality by launching “BharatKeVeer” website to financially help the families of martyrs. And who does not know about all his help in the form of donations and in-kind to the needy people?
3. Creates awareness through his work
His work speaks for itself and he always strives to deliver the best. He left no stone unturned in being vocal about the stigma surrounding menstruation in India through his recent movie “Padman”. It inspired the whole world immensely.
4. It’s all about loving your parents
In spite of being a dazzling celebrity, he touches the feet of his elders. His life mantra is– the best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person. He has also named his production house after his father.
5. Health is wealth
He is one of the fittest and most energetic actors in the film industry. He doesn’t preach to have six packs abs but advises his fans to eat healthy food and adopt natural ways like swimming, yoga, martial arts and meditation to stay healthy.
