Akshay Kumar gets mercilessly slammed by netizens, when he ignored a question on skipping voting in Mumbai. At a special screening of the film "Blank" on Tuesday, the actor interacted with the media, lauding the movie and the performances of debutantes. However, when the actor was asked why he skipped voting, Akshay simply walked off, saying "Chaliye Beta (lets go, lets go)." Fans feel the actor insulted the reporter with his action and they're anything but impressed. Many slammed the actor while calling him a 'hypocrite' and what not!

Apurb K Choudhary @beingAPU

"This was not expected from you Khiladi .. You are a role model, our idol. You should behave properly with media. #AkshayKumar #VoteKarIndia." [sic]

M.@mikechauhan

"Chal Beta tera time khatam! Pack your bags for Canada. #AkshayKumar hypocrisy!!" [sic]

Irsha_kamil @Irshadmak

"How much money did you make through fake interviews?? #AkshayKumar." [sic]

Devika Mittal @devikasmittal

"For the most "deshbhakt" actor, voting or not voting is a small thing. I guess..voting is also apolitical just like your interview with #Modi?.. #AkshayKumar #AkshayInterviewsModi." [sic]

Lal Bahadur Mandal @lalmandal

"I can't believe this that #AkshayKumar being a role model for so many Young's didn't vote! If this is true then he should apologise unreservedly to the young citizens of #India. @narendramodi." [sic]

Manoj @Manoj_9966

"We live in interesting times. @iamsrk has to prove his patriotism though he can vote @akshaykumar is mascot of patriotism though he can't vote." [sic]

How Would Akshay React To These Slamming Tweets?

It's pretty clear that the irony of Akshay skipping voting did not go unnoticed on Twitter, as just last month Modi had tagged the actor in a tweet, asking him to encourage voting. He was in news only a few days ago for his "non-political" interview with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
