We have now also figured out that Akshay Kumar has given financial aid to the families of martyred soldiers in Uri attack. At a latest event, Akshay Kumar honored their families with cheques worth Rs. 5 lakhs and Rs. 10 lakhs.
He said that felicitating them with an award or medal is good but not sufficient. More factors should be done for their families as they need money too. He provided 10 people from the families of martyred with the cheque of Rs. 5 lakhs each.
In 2015, a Border Security Force constable named Rockey died fighting terrorists and killed one of them during the Udhampur terrorist attack. His elder brother Rohit said that it was a great step from Akshay’s side because he was the only actor who thought about them and what a family goes through when a soldier dies for the country. He said that their family felt really nice that at least someone spared some time for them.
