Akshay Kumar wants to be brand ambassador of Gujarat

I want to follow Amitabh
At the time when lots of events are happening negative for Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi, he has got a new fan in the form of bollywood actor Akshay Kumar. He expressed the desire to become a brand ambassador of the state at an inauguration function of the seven-day long sports event 'Khel Mahakumbh' in Vadodara.

He showered praise on Modi for including 60,000 differently-abled persons in the event being organised by the Gujarat government at M S University Pavilion ground. This is the second edition of the state level mega sports event which started last year. Mega status of participation mesmerised the action hero said, “"Never have I heard of such an initiative. I would love to be Gujarat's brand Ambassador if it was offered to me,"

He also suggested to introduce martial art training at school level. To this Narendra Modi responded positively saying, "Akshay Kumar has met me on several occasions in the past pleading for such training in Gujarat. Though I am aware of achievements of the actor, I will definitely look into his demand."
Create Sports Participants

Veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan is the brand ambassador of Gujarat to promote tourism. He received lots of criticism from a section of media who is opposed to Modi on political ideology. Despite this opposition Amitabh did lots of ad campaign for Gujarat tourism last year.

In the current edition of 'Khel Mahakumbh' a record number of about 2.2 million players from across the state have got themselves registered for taking part in different categories of sports. Here participation is given more weight than winning the event. Abiding by this spirit last year 1.5 million players had taken part.

According to the organisers state government wants the youth to play and participate rather just watching games on TV. These events will bring in change and help in promoting sports in the new generation. Over 1,200 artists performed at the inauguration for a grand opening to the mega event on Monday evening .
