Bollywood Megastar Akshay Kumar not being an Indian citizen is a discussion subject that springs up as often as possible between his fans and haters. Inevitably, whenever the on-screen actor gets to social work he’s taunted for not being an Indian resident at first case. Amusingly, the content of his movies consistently put him in a core nationalist avatar or as a propagator for the social issues of the general public. While the Padman actor had gone on records to convey that he’s an Indian and being a Canadian resident doesn’t change this very reality. However, to put a conclusion to his nationality row he has at last applied for Indian citizenship.
Talking on his Canadian citizenship, Kumar at HT Leadership Summit 2019 narrated the life events that drove him to apply for Canadian citizenship. It was during the late 90s when his 14 sequential movies failed in the cinema world. The disappointment as an Actor made him search for other career alternatives as he suspected his profession as an actor was finished. It was then when one of his friends in Canada proposed that he should move to Canada and both will do some business there. That is how Akshay got his Canadian citizenship.
During the process of applying for Canadian citizenship and securing one, Akshay’s 15th release went a hit and there has been no looking back since. Speaking about how he’s ridiculed in spite of being an Indian, he’s asked to prove his nationality via a piece of paper, Akshay explained that he has now applied for Indian citizenship and he’ll be getting it very soon. Hope the actor gets some reprieve now and is viewed as casting his vote in the following Elections 🙂
