When it comes to giving back to society, actor Akshay Kumar is a frequent contributor. He recently donated Rs 1 crore to the reconstruction of a school in Kashmir. He was present in the virtual ceremony for laying the school’s foundation.
On 17th June, Khiladi Kumar had spent an entire day with Border Security Force (BSF) in Jammu and Kashmir. He also shared pictures and wrote, “Spent a memorable day with the @bsf_india bravehearts guarding the borders today. Coming here is always a humbling experience… meeting the real heroes My heart is filled with nothing but respect.”
