Akshay Kumar gets dizzy as he goes for Global Goals

International film megastar Akshay Kumar is the first Indian personality to get behind the #dizzygoals challenge in support of a major campaign launching next month to make the new Global Goals for Sustainable Development famous. Launched at the United Nations General Assembly by 193 world leaders, The Global Goals are a series of ambitious targets to end extreme poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change for everyone by 2030.

Using the connection of “goals”, the dizzy goals challenge invites personalities and the public to run around a ball until they’re dizzy and then to try score a goal. The #dizzygoals for The Global Goals campaign is already breaking the internet as some of the world’s leading footballers were challenged to shoot a dizzy penalty.

Real Madrid F C and Wales national football team’s Midfielder Gareth Bale took the first dizzy penalty challenge for The Global Goals. He was followed by former footballer Gary Lineker OBE, former England striker Alan Shearer OBE and Liverpool Football Club players Jordon Ibe and Joe Gomez.

Akshay Kumar took the hilarious challenge in Houston, USA during rehearsals for his sell-out concerts Fusion which also marks the superstar’s 25th year in the film industry. The #dizzygoals challenge left India’s undisputed action hero no less than dizzy.

The Global Goals campaign aims to make the Global Goals the most famous Goals on the planet by sharing them with 7 billion people in 7 days from the moment they are adopted. The more people that know about the Goals, the more people will work to ensure global leaders drive change and the more young people will be inspired to join a new generation of Global Citizens.

The Dizzy Goals were nearly Akshay’s last chance to show his legs at their finest. The start was performing stunts for a video of “Tung Tung Baje”, the introductory song to his new film “Singh is Bling” – when he burned his leg as he jumped through a burning hoop. Fortunately his injuries were not life threatening – but still, do not try this at  home!
