Dont politicize my citizenship issue: Akshay Kumar

It's known that Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar has said that he holds honorary Canadian citizenship.  Speaking to a news agency on Friday, the superstar has said that the issue shouldn't be politicized.

"I really don’t understand unwarranted interest and negativity about my citizenship.  I have never hidden or denied that I hold a Canadian passport. It is also equally true that I have not visited Canada in the last seven years. I work in India, and pay all my taxes in India," he said.  

The actor added, "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."  

The 'Laaxmi Bomb' hero has been in the news ever since he interviewed Narendra Modi last week.
