In addition, the bank mentioned in the WhatsAPP message, Syndicate Bank, also issued a statement on the same. (click here) The WhatsApp message in Hindi has been translated from a viral WhatsApp message in English, with the�twist�that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's name has been interchanged with actor Akshay Kumar's name, in a few places. (See original English message below) 2) �What does Akshay Kumar have to do with it? Akshay Kumar has been instrumental in setting up a separate initiative�called 'Bharat Ke Veer'. In January 2017, Kumar posted a video on Twitter pitching an idea for a website or a mobile app that could accept voluntarily contributions to families of martyred soldiers. Kumar suggested that the bank details of such families�be available on the website and even recommended capping the donation at Rs. 15 lakh per soldier. �The video received� over 45,000 likes and was widely retweeted.

Subsequently, with the support of India's Ministry of Home Affairs, the "Bharat Ke Veer" website was created. BOOM thinks the Hindi WhatsApp forward was tweaked after the actor posted the�video on Twitter. In addition to these two resources, defence personnel in India also have the National Defence Fund�, which was set up in 1962.�The fund is entirely dependent on voluntary contributions from the public and does not get any budgetary support.�The fund is used for the welfare of the members of the armed forces (including para military forces) and their dependents. (A previous version of this story inadvertently mentioned a�'Bharat Ke Veer' app, the fund only has a website. The error is regretted. )
