Akshay Kumar’s decision to renounce Canadian citizenship
Akshay Kumar, one of the most bankable actors in Bollywood, has always been a subject of scrutiny due to his Canadian citizenship. The actor, who has spent over three decades in the film industry, has time and again clarified his stance on the matter. However, the trolls on social media have not been kind to him, calling him “Canadian Kumar” and questioning his loyalty to the country.
In a recent interaction with Aaj Tak, Akshay Kumar opened up about his decision to renounce his Canadian citizenship. The actor shared that he has applied for a change of passport and is waiting for the process to be completed. Akshay said that he feels bad when people criticize him without knowing the reason for his taking up Canadian citizenship. He further added that India is everything to him and that whatever he has earned and gained is from here.
Akshay Kumar’s decision to renounce his Canadian citizenship is not the first time he has made such a statement. In 2019, during the Lok Sabha elections, the actor faced criticism from certain quarters for not casting his vote in India. Akshay, who holds a Canadian passport, had tweeted that he had been in the process of getting his Indian passport and would surely cast his vote in the next election. However, the tweet did not sit well with some people who questioned his patriotism.
Criticism faced by Akshay Kumar and the problem of nationalism in India
The criticism faced by Akshay Kumar highlights the rampant problem of nationalism and jingoism in the country. In recent years, the trend of questioning people’s loyalty to the country based on their religious beliefs, political affiliations, or even their place of birth has become quite common. The trolling of celebrities on social media is a reflection of the toxic atmosphere prevalent in society.

His movies have also highlighted issues such as corruption, terrorism, and social injustice.
On the work front, Akshay Kumar is gearing up for the release of his upcoming film “Selfie” which hits theaters on February 24.

The movie promises to be a gripping tale that will keep the audience on the edge of their seats.
Apart from “Selfie,” Akshay Kumar has a slew of exciting projects lined up. He will be seen in “Bade Miyan Chote Miyan” alongside Tiger Shroff. The movie, directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, is a remake of the 1998 film of the same name. The actor will also be seen in “Oh My God 2” and “Phir Hera Pheri 2,” two sequels to his hit movies.
