The voting season is here and the month-long schedule of Lok Sabha Elections 2019 has begun. It commenced on April 11 and will conclude on May 19. Every Indian citizen will be casting their vote for the party which they think will serve the country better. As always, B-town celebs will abide by their responsibility and vote for the right candidate too. However, there are a handful of celebrities who won’t be able to cast their vote and we know the reason why. From Akshay Kumar, Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif to Sunny Leone, Imran Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez, these Bollywood stars will not vote in the upcoming elections. Here’s why:
This may come as a surprise to you but the fact is that Akshay is not eligible to vote during elections in India. The actor was born in Punjab and brought up in Delhi. Still, wonder what is the reason? Well, Khiladi Kumar holds a Canadian passport and that is exactly why he hasn’t been voting for many years.
Deepika Padukone is one of the top actresses of Bollywood and her acting skills are unmatched. While we are aware of almost everything about this beauty, her birthplace is not known to many. The Padmaavat actress was born in Denmark and holds a Danish passport. Although she is brought up in Bengaluru, Deepika can’t vote in the Indian General Elections 2019.
Alia Bhatt’s mother, Soni Razdan, hails from Britain. Hence, the actress herself is a British citizen and holds the same passport. Ultimately, that means the Raazi actress is not liable to vote in the forthcoming elections.
Katrina Kaif is an English citizen and it is a known fact. The actress has been in the industry for over a decade but she is not eligible to vote as Kat still has a UK passport.
Sunny Leone aka Karenjit Kaur holds a Canadian passport and although she has her roots in India, the actress cannot vote.
Jacqueline Fernandez’s mother belongs to Malaysia while her father is a Sri Lankan citizen. The actress was born in Bahrain and well, these are reasons enough for her not being eligible to vote in the elections in India.
Aamir Khan’s nephew and actor, Imran Khan, made his Bollywood debut with Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na. He was born and brought up in the United States Of America and moved to India only after his parents’ separation.
