In a show of respect for the Indian Army, Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar paid a visit to a BSF camp in Jammu Tuesday morning and paid tributes to the soldiers who lost their lives in ceasefire violations.

Hailing martyrs and soldiers as true heroes, Akshay thanked the brave soldiers for protecting the nation.

The 49-year-old actor who has essayed the role of a patriot many times on screen, admitted before soldiers that he was only a reel hero and that it was them who were the true patriots.

Akshay further observed that there are many people who wish to join the Army and mooted the idea of an App that could be built for the same.

“There are so many people in our country who want to help our armed forces, why not make an app for it?” said Akshay.

Akshay also brushed aside any political motives behind his visit to the camp, saying he was only there to discuss his love for the BSF.

Have a look at what all Akshay did at the camp:

 

Akshay’s visit to the BSF camp comes at a time when tensions have soared between India and Pakistan. Off late, ceasefire violations have taken toll on many soldiers and civilians. A violation on 6th November, martyred two soldiers and killed 3 civilians in Poonch.

Akshay Kumar has been one of the Bollywood actors to strongly support the Indian Army. At a time when Bollywood was divided over the ban of Pakistani artistes, Akshay had called the debate shameful. He had said that the soldiers at the borders don’t think about if the movies release and just work without any selfish motives.

On the work front, Akshay started working with actress Bhumi Padnekar for the movie ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’.
