Akshay Kumar, who just became 1st ever Indian actor to cross 2000 crores with his movies, now wants to take philanthropy to the next level.
Akshay who is a brilliant martial artist is fed up with cricket’s monopoly in India and wants to encourage kids from poor families who have diverse talents. Talking about cricket, he said “Cricket… I am just damn tired of it! I want something else coming out of this country. I just want it to happen. Support these families, their children are made of something which can get us gold medals at Olympics “.
“If all the corporates support four to five families and give them all the money they need, I think we can come up with gold medals,” he adds.
Akshay made a significant revelation saying “I support three families whose children are eight to nine years old. I support them completely — their father, mother, everything, so that they can come up in the sports field. The children are very interested in sports, so they can come up and become great sports persons”.
As Akshay said, if some of the top most corporates support some underprivileged families to nurture their kids, then who knows, they might emerge as potential Olympic Gold medal winners in the future.
