According to the RSS functioneries, Bollywood actors Akshay Kumar is going to take part in some of their projects. The actor is constantly in touch with them.
Joint secretary of RSS Dattatreya Hosabale recently said, “Someone showed the video of our Pune programme (Shiv Shakti Sangam) to Akshay Kumar which he liked. He wants to know more about the RSS. Even Mr Ratan Tata visited our headquarters in Nagpur,” said Mr Hosabale, adding, “But what I say is in reference of people who are taking interest in RSS works.”
A senior RSS functionary confirmed that Mr Kumar has shown keen interest in some of their projects, particularly the water conservation project. Mumbai-based RSS spokesperson Pramod Bapat said, “There are RSS workers who are in touch with eminent people. Akshay has enquired a lot about the water conservation programme carried out by us in Maharashtra, He has contributed money for the martyrs and does a lot of nationalistic work on his own.”
Akshay Kumar and his team has not responded to the reports yet. RSS is a right wing political party who has often protested against the release of Bollywood films.
