Recently, Akshay Kumar issued an official statement that read, "I really don't understand the 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."
Post this statement of Akshay Kumar, a video of Akshay Kumar has been doing rounds on the social media and the actor is constantly being trolled for the same! In the video, Akshay Kumar can be heard as saying, "This is my home. Toronto is my home. After I retire from this industry, I'm gonna come back here and stay here".
