In a hard-hitting video Rustom star Akshay Kumar questions whether the parents of soldiers who were martyred in the Uri attack are concerned about banning of a film or expelling some artistes from India.
“No. Their only concern is their future and our concern should be securing their present and their future,” the actor said.
In the clip he shares his thoughts about the Uri terror attack and its 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 said 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 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 and commented that the citizens live in peace because the army men guard the nation’s borders.
Today no Bollywood star can step outside of their homes without a mike being poked on their face and asked for his or her comments about the Pakistan actors who had left India. So, now the press knows Akshay’s stand. – CINEWS
