Akshay Kumar who is known for appearing in patriotic and socially relevant cinema often gets targeted for his Canadian citizenship. The actor has always expressed that it hurts when people asked him to prove his love for his homeland. The actor has contributed towards the country but time and again he gets trolled for having Canadian citizenship but making money in India.
However recently, the actor revealed that he has applied for an Indian passport. Soon, his fans poured in comments for the actor and stated they love him no matter what, with or without the Indian passport.
Some of them also commented that now Akshay haters have nothing to say against him.
Check out the comments here:
Back in May, he had also tweeted about the speculations around his citizenship. In a post, he wrote, “I really don’t understand the unwarranted interest and negativity about my citizenship. I have never hidden or denied that I hold a Canadian passport. It is also equally true that I have not visited Canada in the last seven years.
“While all these years, I have never needed to prove my love for India to anyone, I find it disappointing that my citizenship issue is constantly dragged into needless controversy, a matter that is personal, legal, non-political, and of no consequence to others.I would like to continue contributing in my small way to the causes that I believe in and make India stronger and stronger.”
Meanwhile, on the work front, Akshay will be next seen in Raj Mehta’s ‘Good Newwz’ co-starring Kareena Kapoor Khan, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani. The story of the film revolves around two married couples and their journey of love. In the film, Akshay, Kareena, and Diljit, Kiara Advani are shown as couples trying to conceive a baby through IVF.
The film will hit the theatres on December 27.
