Owing to this, authorities working in Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), hospitals and other essential services are on their toes day in and out. A thankless job in itself, they can be easily called the superheroes of our country. While people have been expressing their gratitude for them, Akshay Kumar went a step forward and shared a special video urging his followers to thank them.

Akshay, on Instagram, today, asked the citizens of India to pour out their love for those working for us. The superstar narrated a hard-hitting statement his friend in the Police force told. He said people fear to step out of their home while the situation with the Police is the opposite. "There’s an army of people working day and night to keep us safe, our families safe. Lets together say #DilSeThankYou to them because that’s the least we can do," Akshay wrote while sharing the video.
