- Akshay Kumar has finally reacted to the controversy regarding his citizenship
- The actor had faced flak for not voting in the Lok Sabha Elections 2019
- The 'PadMan' star issued a statement on social media
‘’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. I would like to continue contributing in my small way to the causes that I believe in and make India stronger and stronger,’’ Akshay Kumar said in a statement.
