Akshay Kumar, who has done several patriotic movies, was conspicuous with his absence on the polling day, and when a journalist asked him why did he not vote during the Lok Sabha elections, he avoided the question.
This raised several eyebrows and many people questioned Akshay’s weird behavior. After his no-show during the ongoing elections started making headlines, Akki confirmed that he couldn’t vote as he is a Canadian citizenship.
He released a statement which reads, “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. I work in India, and pay all my taxes in India. 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.”
Needless to say, he has been getting trolled from all quarters of the society, ever since he made the big announcement.
