Actor Kunal Kapoor is backing a campaign that supports injured Indian army jawans and has urged everyone to help them.
Kunal on Thursday night took to his official Instagram account to share the story of one of the soldiers.
Ex Naik Suresh Kumar Karki suffered a spinal cord injury during a military operation. With support from the amazing team at the Paraplegic Rehabilitation Centre, he’s now a national level para-badminton player and has traveled to London, Spain, Indonesia, China, Uganda and Thailand to participate in para-badminton championships. He has bagged several gold, silver and bronze medals in javelin, discus shot-put throw and swimming. I had a chance to meet him, and came back incredibly inspired by his grit, determination and his never say die attitude. Ketto and Rising Pune Supergiant have initiated an online campaign to support soldiers like Suresh. You can be part of this wonderful campaign and get a chance to win tickets, merchandise and meet your favourite cricketers.

After having won everyone’s hearts and attention with the epic historical trilingual film Veeram, the versatile actor Kunal Kapoor has now reportedly been joined the cast of sports drama ‘Gold’, which stars Akshay Kumar in the lead.
The movie is based on the story of Indian hockey team led by Balbir Singh, which won the first Olympic medal for the country as a free nation in 1948. Kunal will apparently be playing a professional hockey player in the film.
