Recently, Akshay Kumar obtained Indian citizenship. The Indian-born actor gained Canadian citizenship a few years ago.
In a recent interview, Akshay Kumar discussed how people on the internet have questioned him about his citizenship, how his wife Twinkle Khanna has responded to criticism, and what he believes will happen to the tense relationship between India and Canada.
For those who don’t know, Akshay just received his citizenship in India. The actress, who was born in India, just acquired Canadian citizenship. On social media, he was the target of extensive trolling by users under the name “Canadian Kumar.” The Airlift actor, however, declared on August 15 that he has returned to India as his citizenship. Akshay recently discussed the growing tensions between the two nations that started a few weeks ago in an interview.
Akshay Kumar told India Today, “I am a very positive person. I hope and pray everything sorts itself out and things are how they used to be. I don’t want to look at the negative side, what has happened but on the positive hope that everything gets better.”
Additionally, he claimed that his wife Twinkle Khanna never pays attention to trolls who mock him and call him various names.
Akshay addressed claims that he is using his films to support the BJP, the political party in power, in the same interview. Many internet users asserted that Akshay’s flicks Mission Mangal and Toilet: Ek Prem Katha were produced to advertise the BJP government’s Swachh Bharat and Mars Mission initiatives. To this Akshay responded, “Lots of people say that they promoted Swachh Bharat Mission and I made Toilet: Ek Prem Katha,” dismissing all assertions. I created Mission Mangal when they were on a Mars Mission. Maine Airlift bhi banai, us waqt Congress ka raaj thi, aisa nahi hai. Nobody discussed that. Even Mission Raniganj takes place during the reign of Congress. It is about the vastness, goodness, and events that occurred. It makes no difference who was in charge. What counts is what was done for the betterment of the country.”
In the meantime, fans have had a mixed reaction to Akshay’s most recent movie, Mission Raniganj, which was just released. Parineeti Chopra is a co-star in the movie, which debuted to a Rs 2.75 crore opening day revenue.
OMG 2, a movie starring Akshay, was also recently released on Netflix.
