Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar gave good news to his fans on India’s Independence Day. He left Canadian citizenship and finally became an Indian.
Akshay released the citizenship documents on his Twitter account. He wrote in the caption, ‘Dil and citizenship are both Hindustani now. Happy Independence Day. Jai Hind.’
Despite claiming to be a nationalist patriot, this actor, who is close to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, did not have Indian citizenship until now. Akshay has come under severe criticism from critics for the past few years. Now he ended that criticism.
Akshay applied for Indian citizenship during Covid. But two and a half years of time was wasted due to covid. At that time, he said, “Even without a passport, I am not less Indian in any way.”
In an interview, the actor said that in the 1990s in Bollywood, one after another, his films were labeled as flops. Akshay decided to leave the country and live in Canada on the advice of his friends. Apply for Canadian citizenship. But after that Akshay rose to the peak of success with the love of fans with consecutive hit movies. Canada granted him citizenship in 2011. Then the controversy started.
Akshay was mocked and repeatedly told that he is not an Indian, not a citizen of India. This question keeps cropping up, especially because of his closeness to Narendra Modi. Critics say Akshay is so nationalist that he does not have Indian citizenship or passport. In such a situation, Akshay again applied for Indian citizenship. Get your passport before Independence Day.
Born in Punjab, India, Akshay’s father Om Bhatia was an Indian Army officer. This actor did not like studies. Akshay has a keen interest in sports, especially taekwondo. Went to Bangkok, Thailand and learned martial arts. Later worked in a travel agency in Kolkata. He also worked as a chef in a hotel in Dhaka. Finally, while teaching martial arts in Mumbai, he caught the attention of director-producers.
Akshay is currently receiving praise for his work in the movie ‘Oh My God 2’. The movie earned 55 crore rupees in 4 days of its release. It is believed that the income of this film will enter the house of 150 crores.
