    Akshay donates 250,000 pounds for Ice Hockey in India

    LONDON: Bollywood star Akshay Kumar has donated over 250,000 pounds to Ice Hockey Association in India to encourage greater participation and awareness in the sport.

    Akshay Kumar is known for his association with an array of sports, from martial arts to ice hockey.

    "After supporting the Annual Karate Tournament this year, Akshay Kumar has donated over 250,000 pounds to the Ice Hockey Association in India to encourage greater participation and awareness in the sport," his spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

    Ice hockey is the backdrop for his latest production 'Speedy Singhs', the cross-cultural Indo-Canadian film starring Rob Lowe, Russell Peters, Camilla Belle and Vinay Virmani, releasing in the UK on September 30.

    During the filming, Akshay became interested in the sport and realised that very few people knew or participated in ice hockey in India.

    He then decided to make it his personal interest to motivate and promote the sport in India and he hopes that his small contribution will encourage people to participate in ice hockey, support the talents already in the field and further popularise it in India.

    Donating to regular hockey would have been better.

    Ice-hockey, baseball, hand-egg and basketball are crap games that only yanks and there small minions play.

    What a stupid dumazz he is.

    Where will Indians get the ice to play hockey on ?

    Instead more than 50 astro-turfs could have been built with that money for our regular players totrain on.
