Actor Akshay Kumar, who is also known as the action hero in Bollywood, says there is no insurance for stuntman in the Hindi film industry and he wants that to change. “Safety is not great here (in Bollywood). Now finally we have ambulance and doctors on the sets for the stuntman and the cast and crew. (However) it’s surprising that there are no insurance for stuntman in Bollywood, so we are all trying to get an insurance done for stuntman,” said Akshay.

Meanwhile, Akshay is busy promoting his next, a comedy film Housefull 3.
