Akshay Kumar revealed that he learned about Glory’s financial troubles through social media. He was deeply moved by the situation and decided to extend his help. “It was disheartening to see the family of Punjab’s pride, Gurmeet Bawa, reeling under financial problems. It’s a gesture of love made to her daughter Glory Bawa as a brother. This is not a help, but fulfilment of my responsibility as a Punjabi and an artiste,” said the actor.

Government Support

In addition to Akshay Kumar’s aid, the Minister of Administrative Reforms and NRI Affairs Department of Punjab, Kuldeep Dhaliwal, also extended support. He visited Glory’s home and presented her with a Rs. 1 lakh cheque as assistance. This combined support has brought much-needed relief to Glory and highlighted the importance of community and solidarity.

Glory Bawa is the daughter of the renowned Punjabi folk singer and Padma Bhushan awardee, Gurmeet Bawa. Despite her illustrious lineage, Glory has faced significant financial challenges. The support from both Akshay Kumar and the Punjab government serves as a reminder of the struggles that many artists face, even those with a celebrated heritage.

Akshay Kumar’s philanthropic gesture has not only provided financial relief to Glory Bawa but has also drawn attention to the struggles faced by many artists.
