Being such an athletic person, Akshay Kumar was asked about the sport of his choice. Here is his reaction:
Akshay Kumar: ?I vouch for all sports, anything that gives inspiration to not only kids, but adults too. You are never too young or old to start. I have actually gone against the average Bollywood trend, and opted for buying a kabaddi team ?Speedy Singh?. I will even be performing at the World Cup Kabaddi tournament at the O2 Arena next week in honour of their Championships!! As idols we need to do the most we can when it comes to promoting, sponsoring, and encouraging sports, as our country has never really stood up for sports.We, as people really need to change this perception.?
