Bollywood actor, Akshay Kumar, has been on the receiving end of anger and outrage after walking 21 kilometers on a treadmill to “feel what rural women go through when they walk long distances to fetch water.”

Akshay performed the ‘stunt’ while hosting a TV show called Mission Paani Waterthon to raise awareness about India’s water crisis.

The actor said, “I wanted to understand the plight of women in rural areas who have to travel long distances for water.

He added while running for a half marathon athletes are given water at every juncture, but the women of rural areas face innumerable difficulties in real life.

However, social media users called out the actor for trivializing the situations that the women in question have to face.
