Akshay Kumar

The Hush Post: Akshay Kumar has been roped in by the Transport Ministry as a brand ambassador for its road safety campaign. The ministry has released videos featuring the Bollywood actor as traffic police inspector cracking a whip on violators. The videos have Akshay, who is promoting his new movie ‘Gold’, telling the traffic violators – Ye Sadak Kisi Ke Baap Ki Nahi Hai (Road is not their personal property). The ‘Padman’ star along with Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari launched the videos to impact the psyche of traffic violators.

In the actor’s own words, he wanted to do something to impact the psyche of the people so that it contributes towards nation building. Akshay has come out with powerful video messages full of pun that make it clear that no one has the right to violate traffic rules.

There is another video of union minister Nitin Gadkari. It says, “Now bravery awards by the Home Ministry would also have a category of good samaritans, who help accident victims.”

Gadkari said he was pained to see “more people killed on Indian roads than in war” and the department roped in the actor, who without any monetary benefits worked for the ministry. “We wanted to give a powerful message to the people as about 65 per cent of accident victims fall in the most productive age group of 18-35 years,” he said.
