Mumbai: A public interest advertisement related to road safety starring actor Akshay Kumar has landed in controversy. This ad and Akshay Kumar are being criticized. This advertisement is being said to promote dowry system. In this one-minute advertisement, the ritual of ‘farewell’ has been shown. It is seen in the advertisement that the crying bride sits in the car and the father is also seen crying while leaving her. Just then Akshay Kumar, who is seen in the role of a policeman, intervenes and asks the emotional father of the bride to send his daughter to a vehicle with six airbags instead of the existing two airbag vehicle, to which the father agrees. In the next scene, the newlyweds are seen leaving in a car with six airbags smiling.Also Read – The style of the highway will change, vehicles will be charged while on the road, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari told the plan

A ministry spokesperson could not be immediately reached for a comment on the matter. However, sources close to the knowledge of the development said that the advertisement does not talk about dowry. Also contacted Akshay Kumar’s representative, but he did not respond officially. Priyanka Chaturvedi had tweeted, “This is a problem ad. Who allowed it? Is it using government money to promote the safety aspect of the car in this advertisement or to promote social evil and crime like dowry system.
