Akshay Kumar won the National Award for Rustom this year. However, it created a huge controversy as many questioned this decision. Akshay has finally broken his silence on the controversy.
Talking to the media, Akshay said, “I am observing this from last 25 years, whenever someone wins the award (National Award) there’s always a debate and someone starts a controversy on whether someone should have or shouldn’t have won the award. I have got this award after 26 years. If someone doesn’t want me to get this award, if you feel like, please go ahead and take it away from me."
The actor was speaking to journalists at the Movie Stunt Artists’ Association event in Mumbai where Akshay announced death compensation and insurance for 380 stunt artists between ages 18- 55 years.
He also tweeted in this regard, “So Happy that finally My Stunt Community is NOW insured for their Brave work & Heartfelt Dedication to Entertain the people of this Country.”
