Akshay Kumar Citizenship: The 77th Independence Day has brought a lot of happiness to all the countrymen as well as film actor Akshay Kumar. On this special day, Akshay Kumar said that he has got Indian citizenship. Akshay Kumar took to Instagram to share a picture of a file from the Ministry of Home Affairs, which shows the papers related to granting him citizenship.
Significantly, about 33 years ago in 1990, Akshay Kumar renounced Indian citizenship and became a citizen of Canada. At that time his films were not playing here and he wanted to settle in Canada due to work. However, his career took off later and he postponed his decision to move to Canada.
Canadian citizenship was talked about in the interview
Akshay Kumar himself talked about taking Canadian citizenship in an interview some time ago. He said that when my films were not doing well, he thought that he would go and work elsewhere. I had a friend there, he was saying come here. I felt my luck was not working here so I went there.
Akshay said that at that time he applied for citizenship there and got it. He said that after that there were more films. Then I said I’d stay here, never thought again.
Applicable in the year 2019
Akshay Kumar has long been targeted for citizenship. Sometimes he is also trolled on social media by calling him Canada Kumar. Akshay said in an interview some time ago that he has applied for Indian citizenship in 2019 itself and will get it soon.
