Akshay Kumar, who plays a Zoroastrian in "Rustom," met the community in the New York, U.S., and was gifted a Faravahar – one of the symbols of Zoroastrianism. Akshay met the people of the community during his family vacation.

Akshay, who plays the role of a Parsi naval officer Rustom Pavri in his upcoming film, had lunch with the Parsi community of America and Canada at an event. During the event, the community felicitated him with Farvahar, also known as Far-e Kiyani.

The "Rustom" actor tweeted a photo, in which he is seen holding the Faravahar pendant. "Blessed to receive this Faravahar from the Zoroastrian community in New York and New Jersey! Thank you for your wishes for 'Rustom'," Akshay posted on Twitter along with the photo.

The actor was in New York along with his wife Twinkle Khanna and daughter Nitara. He promoted his film "Rustom" in the U.S. and managed to spend some quality time with his family as well. On July 9, the family bid goodbye to the city and Akshay posted on Twitter that the family vacation has ended.

He also shared a photo on Twitter, in which he is seen wearing black pajamas and holding his daughter Nitara. Akshay and Nitara are seen standing near a window and saying goodbye to the city. "Like all good things, this holiday too comes to an end! Bidding goodbye to New York with the little one, until next time," he wrote.

On the work front, Akshay is awaiting the release of his film "Rustom," directed by Tinu Suresh Desai. The film, which also features Ileana D'Cruz and Esha Gupta, is slated to release on Aug. 12 worldwide.
