New Delhi. Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar is once again embroiled in controversies. This time he is in trouble for an advertisement, not his film. People’s anger is being seen on Khiladi Kumar for the ad filmed for the road safety campaign. In fact, to encourage 6 airbags in vehicles, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari shared a video of the ad from his Twitter handle. Akshay Kumar is seen in this ad in which he has become a policeman. But Akshay Kumar has come under attack from politicians to social media users regarding the advertisement. People have expressed their objection to this advertisement. Social media users say that this advertisement is promoting dowry, which comes under the criminal category. At the same time, the matter seems to be gaining momentum now.
In this advertisement related to road safety, the father is seen sad after the daughter’s marriage farewell. In the ad, Akshay Kumar says, the doll of the house is going to Papa’s angel. If you send off your daughter in such a car, then you will definitely cry. But Akshay Kumar takes a jibe at the father for giving the newly wed couple a car with 2 airbags. Akshay Kumar has now come under the target of people on social media regarding this matter. People are also trolling him fiercely on Twitter. Shiv Sena MP Priyanka Chaturvedi targeted the government through Akshay Kumar’s ad. He tweeted, “Govt is spending money through this advertisement to promote the safety aspect of the car or to promote the evil and criminal act of dowry?”
This is such a problematic advertisement. Who passes such creatives? Is the government spending money to promote the safety aspect of a car or promoting the evil& criminal act of dowry through this ad? https://t.co/0QxlQcjFNI

Apart from Priyanka Chaturvedi, TMC leader Saket Gokhale has also raised questions on this advertisement of Akshay Kumar. Let us inform that earlier, actor Akshay Kumar was embroiled in controversies for advertising for tobacco brand Vimal. On social media, users also trolled him a lot.
1. Disgusting to see Indian government officially promoting dowry. What even???
2. Cyrus Mistry died because the road design was faulty. That spot is an accident-prone area.
Amazing way to deflect responsibility by pushing for 6 air bags (& expensive cars) instead of fixing roads. https://t.co/vTiTdkeei2

A user named Rakhi Tripathi wrote, Akshay Kumar sahib is giving a message to the boys that to take the same car in dowry which has 6 airbags.
Yeh kya wahiyat ad hai?@akshaykumar sahab ladke waalon ko sandesh de rahe hain ke car wohi dahej mein lena jismein 6 air bags hon. Do the Govt and this celebrity even know what they are promoting? https://t.co/ip9eewMek0

While I thought Akshay Kumar was the biggest problem of this ad. It’s not. For the first time. It’s Indian government promoting dowry using taxpayers money. https://t.co/viVPdcTVVM

Matlab hai 6 airbags wali gadi doge to beti sasural mei safe aur road par bhi safe ! Dehaj ki baat toh humne khae nahi !!

Promoting dowry aside, are you going to tax such vehicles more ?
Or will you give tax deductions for people’s safety?https://t.co/erGzVMgfYo
