Earlier, the actor — whose father was also an army man — had donated Rs 9 lakh to the family of a martyred BSF jawan. The jawan succumbed after being targeted by Pakistani snipers in Jammu and Kashmir. This donation came days after his earlier donation of Rs 80 lakh to the army. Speaking about his action, he had said then, “They are decorated with lot of medals and that is good. But I looked at their faces. The samman was required for them but they need money too. You have to be practical. I thought how about giving them money and that is when I decided to give 5 lakhs to each family.”
