Amid the movie promotions, in an interview with ANI, Akshay pointed out how the school curriculum lacks information about Indian kings. The actor said he was not against teachings about the Mughals, but felt a balance should also be maintained when teaching students about Indian kings.
“I’m not saying we shouldn’t read about Mughals… but balance it (with teaching about Indian kings as well). They were great too. I would like to ask the Minister of Education to look into this matter and see if we can change it,” he said at the press conference during the special screening of his film.
