We all know that Akshay Kumar is a very religious man. But the actor says that he will stop visiting temples and religious place from now on as his latest film Oh My God has changed his perception towards God.
Talking to a leading daily, Akshay Kumar said, "I want to ask everyone their definition of a mandir! The real meaning of the term is mann ke andar, which means that God resides within us. When I was watching the play Kanji Virrudh Kanji (the film is based on it), I was laughing throughout and when it ended I was stunned. That's when I underwent this profound change. I regularly visited shrines and temples all across the country."
Akshay further added, "I realised that I used to spend as much as Rs 4 to 5 lakh on each trip. I used to travel first class, have security, give huge donations and stay in five-star hotels. Now I dedicate this amount to the cancer patients at a Parel hospital. Oh MY God is a small effort from my production house to try and inform people about the real significance of God. Today, I myself am a changed man."
