Cutting Chai with Bhawana Somaaya - Day 566

Akshay Kumar crusades for safety of women

Akshay Kumar is a professional martial arts trainer before he started acting. Sometime ago, Kumar launched an initiative to train women free-of-cost martial arts classes to become aware of self-defence. More than 300 girls are already part of these classes in Maharashtra and now Akshay Kumar plans to extend a helping hand to launch more of these classes.

Though busy with the promotion of his forthcoming film Gabbar is Back, the story of a common man waging war against corruption, Akshay’s character in the film a parallel army to fight against corruption and that has inspired him to conduct more of these classes to control crime.
As a trained 10 Black Belt Martial Artists, he feels it is his duty to provide for the welfare of Indian women and therefore this initiative.

“I teach Martial Arts to 300 girls every week and they comprise women from corporate and media to house maids. I would like to do this on a bigger canvass but don’t have appropriate space, but once I organize that I will reach to a wider section for sure and soon” says Akshay Kumar.
