Mumbai, May 14 (Sampurn)
: Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar
is the latest film celebrity to be bestowed with an honorary doctorate
degree by the University of Windsor in Canada.
In fact, Akshay was honored in Ontario on May 9 as he has been actively involved in the social work both in India and Canada.
