Akshay posted a video message on his Twitter page along with a caption that read: "The Bangalore incident makes me feel we r evolving backwards,from humans to animals,rather beasts coz even animals are better!Truly shameful [sic]."

In the video, the Jolly LLB 2 actor said that it made him furious when he watched the footage of the incident in the television. He lashed out at those who are condemning the women for the incident. "Ek beti ka baap hoon, aur naa bhi hota to shayad ye hi kehta ki jo samaj apni auraton ko izzat nahi de sakta usse apne aap ko insaani samaj kehne ka koi haq nahi hai (As a father of a daughter, or even if I was not, I would say that a society which can't respect women, doesn't deserve to be called a civilized society)," he said.

In the short video, Akshay, a martial arts expert himself, encouraged women to take up martial arts for their own safety.
