OSNEPALNEWS, Kathmandu, 3rd May: Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar has responded to the questions he has been facing about his nationality. With the election, the controversy over his citizenship was making rounds. He is known to be part of many patriotic films such as Airlift, Padman, Toilet – Ek Prem Katha, as well as the upcoming Mission Mangal.
Kumar in his latest tweet said, “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.”
