Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar has been making sure to reach out to as many people as possible to extend his helping hand amidst the pandemic.
He is one of the few actors who was able to shoot for a commercial during the coronavirus lockdown. The actor, along with director R. Balki and the crew, had to wear a mask while shooting for the advertisement. He also could not give R. Balki a hug owing to the social distancing norms.
Talking about how it felt to shoot for a day amidst the pandemic, Akshay shared, “It was exciting to face the camera after so many days, but along with that it was a different feeling. There was less crew, everyone wore masks and maintained social distance. I couldn’t hug Balki sir. Everything was so new but looks like this new is the normal now.”
After donating 500 wrist bands to the Nashik Police for tracking of COVID – 19 symptoms, the actor has now come forward to launch a centralised online health system to monitor the health and wellness of Nashik City Police’s personnels.
Talking about the police force, actor said, “I am just a reel hero, the police force are the real heroes. It is inspiring to hear about them and I salute them for saving so many lives on daily basis. Not just the police, but all front-line workers are great heroes.”
He also spoke about the safety measures to be followed at such trying times and urged the people to follow the guidelines shared by the government when we step out.
