Jacqueline Fernandez, Akshay Kumar and Sidharth Malhotra spent an exciting day at the Women Self Defense Academy. The institute, which gives free self defense training to ladies, was founded by Akshay Kumar and Aditya Thackeray. The cast took part in training sessions during the event and also handed out special certificates to the participants who were graduating from the academy. Jacqueline looked prepared to train hard in her orange shirt and white sweat pants and shoes, looking very pretty with her hair tied up in plaits. Sidharth kept it easygoing in dark shirt and Levis, while Akshay looked clad in a white shirt and dark jeans.
Jacqueline Fernandez said at the event, “I do strongly think self defense is about self confidence. I’m happy that the students here have inspired more girls to come over here and take lessons regarding self defense, and I’m one among them whom you all have inspired.”
“I’m excited to be here with these students on occasion of their graduation day. I must say that I’m very happy to witness the amazing confidence level each and every student here posses with them. I wish in these modern times women in our nation could walk around freely, but as we all know, there are few elements (people), because of whom women these days have to take lessons in self defense for their safety. To be honest I do feel that it’s actually a little bit of shame, but then it’s an essential thing,” said Akshay.
Akshay Kumar also thanked the co-stars of his film Brothers for attending the event!
