Akshay Kumar

Actor-producer Akshay Kumar has always made it clear that he passionately supports sports and would enjoy promoting any kind of sport in India and now, it seems that after martial arts, Akki seems to have turned his attention to hockey.
Kumar, who has tied up with a sports broadcaster for the first edition of Hockey India League (HIL), said, “I am glad to be associated with this spectacular event. I am a sportsperson by heart and it is good to see world class hockey action across cities in the country. I have seen some of the matches and loved what I saw. The quality of action is amazing as you see the best of players in the world showcase their talent on the turf. Day before yesterday’s match, between Mumbai Magicians and Delhi Waveriders was a blockbuster with two evenly balanced teams scoring as many as 10 goals between them. This is exactly the kind of hockey which will attract the youth of today. This league has the potential to change the face of hockey in the country. I will follow as many matches as I can and I think we have here a recipe for a very successful property for years to come.”
Akshay Kumar, who conducts a karate championship every year for kids from across the country, will be next seen playing the role of a con-man in Neeraj Pandey’s heist drama Special 26, which also stars Anupam Kher, Jimmy Sheirgill and Manoj Bajpayee.
