Akshay also recently joined the United Nations in their efforts to raise awareness about global human trafficking, and has helped raise funds for the Trillium Health Care Centre in Mississauga and the Vancouver Children’s Hospital.

On being presented with the Doctorate, Akshay commented, “Wow! This really is one of the most nerve-racking days of my life. My hands are shaking. I don’t think even an Oscar would mean as much as this means to me. Indians believe that our success lies at the feet of our parents. It’s not I who should be receiving this award, but my parents.”
