MUMBAI -- Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar is in favour of central universities hoisting the the national flag in their campuses.

Human Resource Development Ministry led by Smriti Irani recently said that all central universities will fly the national flag on a 207 feet high mast at a prominent place on their campuses.

The 48-year-old Airlift star took to Twitter to welcome the decision made by the ministry.

"Totally with the decision of the Tricolour being hoisted at all Central Universities and why not it brings out the best in us, inspires us to soar high," he wrote.

The move came in the backdrop of the massive controversy over alleged anti-India protests in JNU "prominently and proudly" to signify a "strong India".
