Akshay Kumar who had penned down a heartfelt letter to all the stuntmen and stuntwomen of Bollywood in March 2016 is now happy to know that Insurance is covered to stuntmen and stuntwomen.
Excerpts of his letter included,
"You deserve so much more than just a wage packet, and I hope I live long enough to see a change in that. I know that in my 25-yearlong career nothing much has changed! But it will, and I will try and make sure of that… Till then Thank You and take great care. Good luck with the fight for your rights… RIP to all those who have lost their lives."
The insurance scheme has been planned and sketched by Akshay Kumar himself emphasized how he is first a stuntman and then an actor.
Here is the insurance scheme:
1. The scheme covers 380 stuntmen and women who are in the age between 18 and 55 years.
2. If any physical injury or accident occurs while doing stunts, a stuntman will be covered for Rs six lakh at about 4,000 hospitals through a cashless system.
3. In a case of death, Rs 10 lakh will be passed on to the appointed nominee.
Truly, a very great initiative by Akshay Kumar, What you all say on this? Share us in the comments.
