It all probably started with that infamous non-political interview with PM Modi after which his Canadian citizenship is called into question, Akshay Kumar has found himself in the midst of several controversies if you’re aware about it.
After all this disturbance about his citizenship, he finally issued a statement on Twitter and said that he felt disappointed. Furthermore, he also mentioned that he has never denied or hidden the fact that he holds a Canadian passport.
“Really don't understand 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. I work in India, and pay all my taxes in India,” he wrote.
He cited about the citizenship issue concerning him which is constantly dragged into meaningless controversies, Akshay added, "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."
Following this fiasco, actor Anupam Kher has taken a stand for the actor. Taking his side on a tweet, he wrote, “Dear Akshay Kumar! Have been reading about you explaining to certain people about your loyalty to our country. Stop it! Their real profession is to make people like you & me feel defensive for talking in favour of India. You are a doer. You don't need to explain to anybody.”
The spark enhanced when Akshay Kumar was not seen in any polling booths of Mumbai while his wife Twinkle Khanna was spotted at a polling booth without him.
