Army Day is celebrated in India on January 15 every year. On this occasion, Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar met some of the soldiers of the Indian Army and played a quick match of volleyball with them.
The actor took to Instagram to document the occasion. He wrote, “Had the pleasure of meeting some of our bravehearts today to flag off a marathon on the occasion of #ArmyDay and what better way to warm up than a quick game of volleyball.” The slow-motion video captures a very tactful blocking of the volleyball by one of the players.
