Ever since news of Akshay Kumar holding a Canadian passport, and thereby not voting in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections, came out, Twitterati has prosecuted the star for not being a 'true national'.
Akshay Kumar released a statement to offer clarification, but his response drew flak from Twitterati for presenting contradictory statements.
And in the wake of the ongoing controversy, an old video of the star has surfaced on the internet where he is stating to a crowd that Toronto is his home.
I must also tell you one thing, this is my home. Toronto is my home. After I retire from this industry, I will come back here and stay here.
Twitterati has continued to call out the star for not stating the complete truth about his citizenship.
There is a solution, you know. You could stop riding on the high horse of fascism to sell everything from movie & chaddi to cement.— Vidya (@VidyaKrishnan) May 3, 2019
Your citizenship is being questioned because you walk around telling everyone else how they arent Indian enough. For you! A Canadian.. so..
So why hold a Canadian passport if you live in India and pay taxes here? Are you ashamed of Bharat Mata?— Suryanarayan Ganesh (@gsurya) May 3, 2019
Akshay Kumar has not released any further statements in response.
