Akshay Kumar welcomes decision to hoist tricolour in varsities

Mumbai, Feb 19 (IANS) Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar has hailed the decision to hoist the national flag in all central universities in the country, saying the tricolour inspires Indians to soar high and reach new heights.

The actor took to Twitter on Friday to express his views on the human resource development ministry’s directive to all central universities in the country to fly the national flag.

“Totally with the decision of the tricolour being hoisted at all central universities and why not it brings out the best in us, inspires us to soar high,” Akshay tweeted.

The decision to have the national flag atop all the varsities came on Thursday at the meeting of vice chancellors of central universities chaired by HRD Minister Smriti Irani.

Akshay, son of an Army man, is known for featuring in films running high on patriotic sentiment, with his last Bollywood outing being “Airlift”, which revolves around the evacuation of Indians from Kuwait during the 1990 Iraq-Kuwait war.

One of the highpoints in the film is when the national flag is unfurled, evoking patriotism and a twirl of emotions among the cine-goers.
