Watch: Families of deceased armymen don’t care about film bans, says Akshay Kumar960 views
The actor said that the future of the families of the deceased armymen needs to be secured.
Mumbai: After scores of Bollywood celebrities like Karan Johar, Salman Khan, Nana Patekar and Javed Akhtar opened up on the ban on Pakistani artistes in India, it was Akshay Kumar’s turn to do it.
The actor shared an explosive video of him rambling bluntly about the Uri terror attacks, the retaliatory surgical strikes and their repercussions.
“Today, I’m not speaking to you as a star or a celebrity. I am speaking to you as an army man’s son,” he clarifies before adding, “I have been noticing our countrymen fighting amongst themselves since a few days. A few of them are asking for a proof of the surgical strike, while others have been asking for the artistes to be banned, while some others are just concerned if a war might happen at all.”
The actor who seemed to be in the mood to not mince words said that people should be ashamed of themselves.
“The fights can wait. What needs to be understood is that someone’s already died on the frontier. The 19 soldiers who were martyred in the Uri terror attacks and the 24-year old Nitin Yadav who was martyred in the Baramulla attack… Do you think their families are concerned about the release of a film or a ban on an artiste? No. Their only concern is their future and our concern should be securing their present and their future,” the actor lashed out.
Akshay who’s been working on Subhash Kapoor’s ‘Jolly LLB 2′ was visibly emotional about the issue and posited that the citizens live in peace because the armymen guard the nation’s borders.
Akshay, a blatant patriot, concluded his monologue saying ‘Jai Hind.’
