Akshay Kumar ditches Canadian Passport for Indian, says no more trolling

Akshay Kumar applies for Indian citizenship, Twitter goes gaga over the happy news of their favorite patriotic star seeking Indian citizenship.

The Bollywood celebrities are no stranger to internet trolls. They are constantly under the public eye which makes them prone to rude comments, nasty remarks and sexual advances on social media.

However, our celebs have now learnt the art of shutting down their trollers one big move at a time. Recently, the Khiladi Kumar was badly trolled  for holding a Canadian passport despite being an Indian film star who comes across as the ‘most-patriotic’ actor of current times.

Earlier this year, Akshay Kumar was subject to great social media flak when he didn’t caste his vote in the Lok Sabha Elections. The star, who currently possesses a Canadian passport, has finally applied for an Indian passport. The 52-year-old star revealed the details during a promotional event in Delhi on Friday. He made sure the world knew that he was and will always be a proud citizen.

During the Good Newwz’ promotional event in Delhi, the star was questioned about his Canadian Passport. He responded by saying that he had already applied for an Indian passport. He also said that it hurt his sentiments that he need a piece of paper to prove his nationality. But for what it’s worth, his critics would no longer be able to shut him down for choosing patriotic films. Read some tweets that put down Akshay Kumar as the ‘fake patriotic actor’.

At the event, Akshay also said that he was forced to have a Canadian passport because at one point of time he wanted to move there for business. He said when 14 of films flopped in a row, he had no choice but to move to Canada with a friend who offered to help the super star. However, his 15th films killed it at the Box Office post which the ‘Kesari’ star never looked back. He even mentioned that his wife and kids are very much Indian citizens with Indian passports. He said he could’ve gotten them Canadian citizenship, but he didn’t because he is a proud Indian citizen. ‘I pay my taxes here. My life is here’, he added.

The star has been under the national radar for such a petty issue because he’s emerged out as the ‘most-patriotic Indian actor ever’. Akshaykumar has been a part of seven patriotic films in the last five years. He always reserves the Independence Day weekend for one of his patriotic films release. In 2019, ‘Mission mangal’ smashed all Box Office records becoming another successful hit in his kitty. Akshay’s other hits include war epic Kesari (Rs 151.87 crore), Gold (Rs102.01 crore), Pad Man (Rs 78.22 crore), Toilet: Ek Prem Katha (Rs 132.07 crore), Rustom (Rs 24.45 crore), Airlift (Rs123.46 crore) and Baby (Rs 81.83 crore).

The Akshay Kumar fans are finally rejoicing the little happiness on Twitter.

On the work front, Akshay Kumar will be seen alongside Kareena Kapoor Khan, Kiara Advani and Diljit Dosanjh in ‘Good Newwz’. The film will release in theaters on 26 December 2019.
