India too should have a Hockey Day, says Akshay Kumar

Mumbai: Akshay Kumar feels that like Canada, India too should celebrate a Hockey Day.

"Canada has given me something very interesting to think about. If Canadians can celebrate Hockey Day, why can`t we Indians support our own national sport and initiate something similar? What are your views?" Akshay wrote on twitter.

Akshay is making debut as a producer of a Hollywood film -- `Breakaway` -- which is a cross-cultural hockey drama set in the Indo-Canadian community in Toronto, Canada.

Directed by Robert Lieberman, `Breakaway` is about a young Indian ice hockey player caught between family`s traditional expectations and his dream to make it big in the national sport of his adopted country.

Real-life hockey player Vinay Virmani debuts in the movie in the lead role.
