Akshay Kumar is a staunch supporter of the green agenda, driven to protect and respect the environment. But this time he has gone one step ahead by setting an example for all the litterbugs who don't respect or care for their country and their surroundings.
They say actions speak louder than words. Akshay Kumar disciplined a man smoking in his car during Mumbai traffic, for carelessly throwing an empty cigarette packet out of his car's window. In the middle of a busy road, Akshay walked out of his car and picked up the cigarette packet and returned it to the litterer embarrassing him for his action.
Talking about this incident on twitter, Akshay said, "On my way to work this morning this guy really frustrated me. I had to get out of my car in the middle of Bombay traffic right by Mr. Bachchan's house, & literally pick up off the road an empty packet of cigarettes that this man decided to carelessly throw out his window without a second thought. Not only do we have to put up with the fact he smokes but we also have to deal with the fact that he doesn't care a damn about his city or his motherland that God has so graciously provided for him."
Akshay who abides by the principles of healthy living, urged people who create unhealthy environments to stop smoking and littering the streets and their surroundings and not to abuse the country they live in but work towards the betterment of society.
