Akshay Kumar is one of those Bollywood stars who have always extended a helping hand when a natural calamity strikes, or even a pandemic. And now the khiladi of hindi film industry has done his bit in promoting education in the country.
Akshay spent an entire day with Border Security Force (BSF) on June 17 in Jammu and Kashmir, and later took to Twitter to share pictures. “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,” he captioned the pictures.
During his visit when the actor spotted a school in a dilapidated condition he expressed his wish to contribute ₹1 crore for rebuilding it.
And on July 27, the BSF took to Twitter to share the news that the foundation stone has been laid for it. The education block has been named after Kumar’s father, late Hari Om Bhatia. Sharing the pictures from the virtual event BSF wrote, “DG BSF Sh Rakesh Asthana along with Sh @akshaykumar Padma Shri laid foundation stone of Hari Om Bhatia Education Block at Govt Middle School Niru, Kashmir in presence of Smt Anu Asthana, President BWWA & Sh Surendra Panwar, SDG Western Command BSF through weblink today.”
