Akshay Kumar responds to citizenship row, reveals about Canadian passport


Controversy surrounding Akshay Kumar’s citizenship is hitting the headlines and the actor came open about the issue and said that he does not understand the hullaballoo over his citizenship issue and as he never denied or hidden that he holds a Canadian passport.

In a long Twitter post, Akshay wrote, He wrote, “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. Lastly, I would like to continue contributing in my small way to the causes that I believe in and make India stronger and stronger.”

The rumour about his citizenship sparks fire when the actor did not turn up to vote with his wife Twinkle Khanna.

Akshay Kumar was lately in news for interviewing Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
