Akshay Kumar is often fired by netizens about his Canadian citizenship, even though he has never hidden or denied having a Canadian passport. Although Khiladi Kumar doesn’t care about online trolling, he recently revealed he was considering a move to Canada after delivering 14-15 flops in a row.
“A few years ago my films weren’t working. About 14-15 films hadn’t worked so I thought I should probably move somewhere else and work there. A lot of people are moving there (to Canada) for work, but they are still Indians. So I also thought that if fate does not support me here, then I should do something about it. I went there, I asked (the citizenship) and I got it,” Akshay told Lallantop.
He added, “I have a (Canadian) passport. What is a passport? It is a document used to travel from one country to another. See, I am an Indian, I pay all my taxes and I pay them here. I have a choice to pay them there too but I pay them in my country. I work in my country. A lot of people say things and they have the right to do so. To them, I would just like to say that I am an Indian, and I will always be an Indian.”
On Koffee With Karan 7, when Karan Johar asked Akshay if he was being trolled on social media, the Khiladi Kumar replied, “At most they write about Canada. Which I don’t care about.” Karan then pointed out that trolls call him Canada Kumar. To which, he replied, “Yeah Canada Kumar. Alright call me that.”
Akshay is currently hoping for a good holiday for her recently released film Raksha Bandhan, which went up against Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha at the box office. However, boycott tendencies severely affected the business of both films.
