Aishwariya Rai deserved the award. She has done many humanitarian works and is very famous in abroad too. She also did campaign for Polio drops and donate eyes. But why Akshay? I have no clue about it.

In my view padma shri is a national award.that should be given to someone who did something for the country.i think aishwaraya rai bachan is ok.but akshay kumar should not get.that prize should give to the olympic medalist.because they did something that very few people till now did.

It is the policy matter. In each field someone has to get it, So this year they had decided to give it to Aishwarya Rai and Akshay Kumar. Regarding contribution can you justify that all the others from different field who had been given this prestigious award are eligible to get this award. Getting just one gold medal means that he is capable for the award, what about those who had contributed their entire life for their particular field. This award only means that their work are been honoured in that particular year. But this awards are also given for their lifetime services to that field. While thinking of these big names think of all those culprits, politicians and businessmens who had chosen for this awards. Think of them, then think of this two.
