Aug 15 – Actor Akshay Kumar stated on Tuesday that he has re-become an Indian citizen, which he shared with his fans on Independence Day.
Kumar, who has been chastised for his Canadian citizenship, posted a photo of his Indian citizenship document on X, formerly Twitter.
“Dil aur citizenship, dono Hindustani (Heart and citizenship, both Indian). Happy Independence Day! Jai Hind!” the Khiladi actor said.
Kumar has stated that he went through a bad patch in his career in the 1990s when he had over 15 straight flops, which prompted him to ask for Canadian citizenship.
His citizenship was called into question after he did not vote in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. The issue was also raised after he performed a “non-political” interview with Prime Minister Narendra Modi prior to the elections.
At a 2019 event, the actor announced that he has sought for an Indian passport.
Kumar is now starring in “OMG 2,” alongside Pankaj Tripathi and Yami Gautam. Last week, the film was released in theatres around the country.
