Mumbai: Akshay Kumar, who had come up with an idea of an App for helping families of martyred central paramilitary forces, a few months back, realised his dream when the same was translated into reality on Sunday.

The App and website ‘Bharat Ke Veer’ was launched Sunday by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh. Kumar, who was honoured with the National Film Award in the Best Actor category for his performance in ‘Rustom’, lauded the Government of India for making his dream come true and providing a platform for everyone to help the family of martyred soldiers financially.

"This website has been made exactly in two and a half months. About three months, this idea came in my mind, while watching a documentary film on terrorists, which showed how terror leaders financially support the families of the terrorist who carry out terror acts." Akshay said at the inauguration.

"Everybody wants to connect to people in uniform in their pain. It was a small dream and to fulfill this dream, our government really helped us. I want to thank everybody with my folded hands. My father was in Army and I am here as his son. Thank-you everyone," he added.

Akshay, who has been vocal about concerning issues in the recent part, took to Twitter Sunday to share his experience of being a part of an event of that stature.

He tweeted: “Such an Honour to Garland the sacred soil of the Sardar Post on #ValourDay. Launching my dream, #BharatKeVeer as we speak!! Jai Hind (sic).”

“A heartfelt thank you to hon. @rajnathsingh,Shri. Rajiv Mehrishi and @paramiyer_ for making #BharatKeVeer possible (sic).”

“A Day I Found Hard To Hold Back My Tears...Support the families of our Bravehearts #BharatKeVeer Now LIVE --> http://BharatKeVeer.Gov.in (sic).”

The portal is an IT based platform, with an objective to enable willing donors to contribute towards the family of brave-heart who sacrificed his/her life in line of duty.

The amount so donated will be credited to the account of `Next of Kin` of those Central Armed Police Force/Central Para Military Force soldiers. Actor Akshay Kumar was the Guest of Honour during the function.
