"Congratulations Akshay Kumarji for winning the 'Social Influencer' award at Maharashtrian Of The Year. A very deserving, socially sensitive and true Indian in every sense! Your contribution and unconditional support for social cause is most appreciated," Munde tweeted.
Akshay, through his work in films like "Toilet: Ek Prem Katha" and "Pad Man", has addressed social issues like open defecation and menstrual hygiene. He has even set up vending machines for sanitary napkins at various places. Earlier this month, Akshay also inaugurated a public toilet at the famed Juhu Beach and handed it over to the BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC).
