Akshay Kumar, the Khiladi of Bollywood, celebrated his 50th birthday on September 9 surrounded by his loved ones and family members. While it is not uncommon for fans to go to extremes when it comes to sending gifts, presents and greetings to their favourite actors on their birthdays, Kumar was in for a touching surprise (and so were we) when his fans across the country decided to do something meaningful on the occasion of his birthday. Celebrating the actor’s good health and prosperity, fans in Pune, Ranchi and Orissa, among others, decided to conduct free medical check-ups and provide food and free books to the needy and orphans. Not only the Internet, but the star himself noticed the efforts of his fans and was touched, to say the least.
Kumar thanked his fans on the micro-blogging site saying, “Extremely touched and proud of you all. Thank you so much.”
Check out how Kumar’s fans in Pune celebrated his birthday in a really compassionate way.
