The actor, who had visited Border Security Force (BSF) in Kashmir on June 17 this year, had spotted a school in a dilapidated condition there, and had expressed his wish to contribute Rs 1 crore for rebuilding it.
Check out the pictures from his visit here:
He had captioned his post, ‘Spent a memorable day with the @bsf_india bravehearts guarding the borders today. Coming here is always a humbling experience… meeting the real heroes My heart is filled with nothing but respect.’
Now, the BSF took to Twitter to share the news that the foundation stone has been laid for it. The school has been named after Akshay’s father, late Hari Om Bhatia.
