This is not the first time when Akshay has praised government officials. While promoting Rustom in Hyderabad, Akshay took a day off to visit Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy. He interacted with IPS recruits and also played a volleyball match. Akshay, from time to time, also keeps praising soldiers and officers for their contribution to the country.
Of late, Akshay has been seen doing many roles of responsible government officials in his movies. His movies including Baby, Airlift , Special 26, Gabbar and Rustom saw him playing the role of a responsible citizen and taking on corrupt officials and terrorists. This is a departure from his earlier films where he mainly did largely comedy or action.
Akshay is currently working on his next film Jolly LLB 2. The actor is in Lucknow. Only a few days ago, the busy actor also took some time off to celebrate the birthday of his daughter Nitara.
