Akshay’s soft corner for karateAugust 4th, 2009 - 3:58 am ICT by Sampurn Wire
Akshay Kumar who is said to have a special liking for karate is all geared up to sponsor India’s first-ever open Karate championship. Akki is said to be backing Shihan Mehul Vora who is an instructor with over 27 years of experience. The championship will be named Akshay Kumar Invitational Open and will feature 2000 fighters from all over the country.
Akshay who is as of now shooting abroad for Sajid Nadiadwala’s Housefull is said to have earlier presented a mini series called Seven deadly arts and is playing on various international channels. With all his support Vora has decided to invite all international coaches and observers to boost the event.
Action king Akshay is said to have learnt martial arts at the age of nine and then mastered it in Bangkok. He strongly feels that it’s not a form of violence but a form of discipline that can change ones life.
