Controversy around Akshay Kumar citizenship

Akshay Kumar is undoubtedly one of the busiest actors we have in Bollywood. Aside from his upcoming plans there are many things that are keeping the actor under the spotlight these day and one among is his Canadian citizenship. Now after all the controversies about his citizenship over last few days following the Lok Sabha elections 2019 voting, several people are now questioning his eligibility for National Film Award.

But Akshay Kumar does have an answer for all these things. On Friday 3rd May, Akshay tweeted that: “I really don’t understand the unnecessary interest and negativity about my citizenship. I have never hidden or denied that I hold a Canadian passport. It is also equally true that for the past seven years I have not visited Canada. I work 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.”
