This is part of an initiative by the actor and a senior IPS officer. Kolhapur range IGP, Vishwas Nangre Patil told PTI,

We made a list of martyred policemen and military/ paramilitary personnel who were from Kolhapur, Sangli, Satara, Pune rural and Solapur rural region. When Akshay Kumar got to know of this initiative, he also decided to join.

This is a beautiful initiative on the part of the actor, as he extended his love and support to the families of the soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the nation.

Much respect!
