Akshay Kumar trolled for Canadian passport after BMC tweet


“Toothpaste mein desh ki mitti hai, handwash mein desh ki suraksha hai, saabun mein deshbhakti ka jhaag hai….lekin passport mein desh ki naagrikta nahi hai. Advertising

The replies to his tweet ranged from being abusive to ones mentioning his Canadian nationality. Advertising

Akshay’s citizenship was the subject of intense speculation after he did not vote in Mumbai on April 29 in the fourth round of the seven-phase Lok Sabha polls. Canadian,” a user wrote. The actor had earlier said he doesn’t understand the “unwarranted interest and negativity” about his citizenship as he works in the country and pays his taxes here.

Later, the 51-year-old said he had never hidden or denied the fact that he holds a Canadian passport. “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 had said. — Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) July 6, 2019
This, however, didn’t go down well with several people who called the tweet ironical. On Sunday, the actor tweeted, “The BMC is now on twitter as @mybmc, you can now tweet your suggestions/ grievances to BMC directly and get them addressed. Ye kaisa deshprem hai. 0
