Akshay Kumar announced he is seeking Indian Citizenship again. He made this announcement in the HTLS2019 event last evening. See this short video now
Akshay Kumar who is known for his Social Impact movies as well as his closeness to the Prime Minister Modi has been under criticism from the Left of Centre supporters on Social Media. Akshay Kumar was the highest Tax payer of the country in 2009
To quote him, he said
"I am an Indian and it hurts me that I am asked to prove that every time. My wife, my children are Indian. I pay my taxes here and my life is here,” Akshay said.
Akshay Kumar first made an official statement on his Canadian Citizenship in May this year
It is unclear when Akshay Kumar became a Canadian Citizen.
Akshay Kumar said the main reason he considered shifting to Canada was he was struggling to make progress in Bollywood (on Account of a series of Flops). He intended to start a business in Canada with a close friend of his in Canada.
Akshay Kumar has delivered a series of Social/ Nationalistic Message Hits in the last 4 years
- Mission Mangal
- Pad Man
-Toilet: Ek Prem katha
The latest announcement on taking up Indian Citizenship will deflect away a lot of ire that is directed at Akshay for his citizenship. However, it is unlikely to satisfy the Liberal left which will perhaps continue to criticise him for his closeness to the PM Modi.
