Akshay Kumar: Audience must understand whom to follow

Actor Akshay Kumar at a recent event said that the audience must understand which celebrity they should follow while imitating them in their personal life.

The actor made the remarks while launching an anti-cancer product ‘Svarn Sathi’, a nutraceutical, under the Centre’s ‘Swasth Bharat’ initiative yesterday in Mumbai.

“I think audience also must understand whom (stars) to follow and whom not to follow. I feel endorsing harmful product or service is incorrect. I would urge them not to endorse such things because people look up to them and imitate them so, I hope people get this message clear and straight and they will stay away from these products,” Akshay said about celebrities in the film industry endorsing harmful products which are injurious to health like alcohol and tobacco.

Sharing his feeling after associating himself with the brand, Akshay posted a message on his official Twitter account: “I’m always for health and all things healthy. Glad to associate with Svarn Saathi, an anti-cancer product made with active natural ingredients in the right composition which helps counter the ill-effects of bad habits like smoking, alcohol, and tobacco.”

When asked if he would recommend the product to his friends in Bollywood, Akshay said: “Yes definitely.. Whether it is friend or enemy, ‘Svarn Sathi’ is made for everyone. I hope people will use it. I think it’s very beneficial and a good thing. It fights with harmful elements which are in our body. In fact, I will gift this product to my friends as a Diwali gift.”

On the work front, Akshay Kumar will be next seen in Reema Kagti’s sports drama film ‘Gold’ followed by S. Shankar’s multi-lingual science-fiction film ‘2.0’ alongside megastar Rajinikanth .
