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.

That’s me, with Sepoy Tapas Kumar Roy. I had the honour of meeting him recently and came back incredibly inspired. This 36 year old soldier was medically boarded out in 2010 after he became paraplegic due to a spinal cord injury, while serving the nation. But he didn’t let this injury bring him down – he joined the amazing institution of the army, the Paraplegic Rehabilitation Centre (PRC) in Pune. Now a medal winning, national level para-swimmer, he is working toward his dream of bagging a medal at the Paralympic Games in 2020. The motto of the PRC is ‘it’s not their disability but their ability that matters’ and these soldiers have not let any disability stand in the way of their achievements. @Ketto and @RisingPuneSupergiant have initiated an online campaign to support these soldiers. You can be part of this wonderful campaign and get a chance to win tickets, merchandise and meet your favourite cricketers.

Meet Ex Paratrooper Amol Boriwale – he was medically boarded out after a tragic mine blast injury during war. When he joined the Paraplegic Rehabilitation Centre (PRC) for his extended rehabilitation, he took up archery. And since he picked up the bow and arrow, he has been unstoppable; he has won 20 gold medals at the national level, 10 at the state level and was even awarded with ‘Eklavya’ by the state of Maharashtra. It’s been such an honour meeting him. I’m going to post stories of a few more of these amazing soldiers, that have achieved so much, despite the challenges they faced. Stay tuned 🙂 Ketto and Rising Pune Supergiant have initiated an online campaign to support these 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.

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.
