Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar was recently criticised for not showing up to vote. Several prominent Bollywood stars came out to vote Monday as polling was held for six Lok Sabha seats in Mumbai, but Akshay was not seen among them.
During a media interaction on the sidelines of Blank movie’s special screening in Mumbai on Tuesday, Akshay was asked about how he would react to the criticism over his absence from the polling booth.

Kumar was in news only a few days ago with his “non-political” interview with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
For a very long time, there has been speculation about the actor’s nationality, with many claiming that he holds Canadian citizenship.
On the professional front, Akshay has lots of movies in his kitty. He has ‘Sooryavanshi’, ‘Mission Mangal’, ‘Laaxmi Bomb’, ‘Good News’ and ‘Housefull 4’.
