Days after Akshay Kumar's interview with Prime Minister Narendra Modi grabbed headlines, the actor got into controversy over his Canadian passport. The actor was attacked on social media for holding Canadian citizenship. In response to the same, he had tweeted, "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." He further said, "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." Akshay also added that he would continue to contribute to make India stronger.
