Akshay Kumar, the big Bollywood star is in news for all wrong reasons. The star got trolled on social media when after he welcomed the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s debut on Twitter, saying people can now tweet their “suggestions and grievances” to the civic body directly.
Since Akshay did not vote in Mumbai on April 29 in the fourth round of the seven-phase Lok Sabha polls, he is getting brutally trolled for his Canadian citizenship. Later, the 51-year-old said he had never hidden or denied the fact that he holds a Canadian passport.
When he tweeted about BMC, trolls again started clamping Twitter. Netizens called Akshay Kumar’s tweet ironical. The replies to his tweet ranged from being abusive to ones mentioning his Canadian nationality. Take a look:
Just a few weeks ago, Akshay had said he doesn’t understand the “unwarranted interest and negativity” about his citizenship as he works in the country and pays his taxes here. The actor further said that,
“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”.
