Mumbai, March 14 -- Akshay Kumar shared a special bond with his late father Hari Om Bhatia. He even named his production house Hari Om Entertainment. And now, Akshay is extending his love by starting a cancer shelter, exclusively for police personnel, under his dad's name - Hari Om Cancer Shelter.
"The project is close to Akshay's heart. Years ago, when his (ex-armyman) father was undergoing chemotherapy at the Tata Memorial hospital, Akshay would notice how several policemen - while undergoing treatment for the disease - would face trouble with their stay and food arrangements. And that memory stayed in Akshay's mind," says an insider. "In effect, a policeman, who is undergoing cancer treatment in Mumbai can avail of the shelter's services, including food and AC rooms with TV sets, by paying just R400 per day."
