“I have never hidden or denied my Canadian passport”, says actor Akshay Kumar over citizenship row

Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar has been repeatedly questioned about his nationality to which the actor finally broke the silence today, stating that he has never hidden or denied that he hold a Canadian Passport.

In a Twitter post on Friday, he wrote that he is a tax-payer In India and intends to make the country ‘stronger and stronger.’

“I really don’t understand 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,” says actor Akshay Kumar.

”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,” he added.
