Bollywood actors are quite concerned about the well being of Mumbai city, this came to the forefront through an episode that took place on the busy Mumbai roads. Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar , stopped a car driver in the middle of a busy road at Juhu. The reason being that the man had thrown out an empty packet of cigarettes on the road, thus littering it.
India’s erstwhile Prime Minister has been promoting the Clean India programme since long, many celebrities have been doing the needful to spread the message amongst the masses of the country. From Salman Khan to Priyanka Chopra they all have done the job of cleaning their surroundings. Salman Khan is also keeping an eye that the clean streets do not return to their earlier a state.
Now we have Akshay Kumar too doing the same, though the episode took place around four years back, the picture of Akshay Kumar stepping out and stopping that car has recently gone viral on social network.
Akshay had even posted a letter on social Twitter
“I’m going to start with an apology, I’m sorry for this negative message guys, its just that on days like today I cant stand the ignorance of some people. On my way to work this morning this guy really frustrated me. I had to get out of my car in the middle of Bombay traffic right by Mr Bachchan’s house, & literally pick up off the road an empty packet of cigarettes that this man decided to carelessly throw out his window without a second thought. Not only do we have to put up with the fact he smokes but we also have to deal with the fact that he doesn’t care a damn about his city or his motherland that God has so graciously provided for him. If we all treated the streets of India with as much love as we do our homes & temples, we would have 5 star ratings on cleanliness rather than being known as one of the dirtiest cities in the world. I’m no angel, I drive a car, I fly in planes, sometimes I accidentally leave the light on, but I consciously try everyday not to dirty or abuse our city. Question is do you? What’s the worst thing you’ve ever done to our environment, something u walked away from that u wished deep down u hadn’t done? I know for sure the guy that littered in front of me today wont forget his actions. I must say I’m sorry for scaring him but don’t abuse India’s streets & maybe they wont abuse you! Dont forget, let me know ur bad habits smile emoticon sometimes writing about them helps u confront & consciously strive to better them. I cant help it i love my country, i just cant cant stand those who don’t.”
Akshay Kumar is known to live a healthy lifestyle, with his one move he has also proved that he cares for his country too.
