Well now, the actor found support in Anupam Kher as he wrote, “Dear @akshaykumar! Have been reading about you explaining to certain people about your loyalty to our country. Stop it! Their real profession is to make people like you & me feel defensive for talking in favour of India. You are a doer. You don’t need to explain to anybody”


In response to Anupam Kher’s post, Akshay Kumar said, “Dearest @AnupamPKher ji, duly noted, also thank you for this and thank you for being more of a friend than a colleague. Hugs.”

A few days back, Akshay also released the statement and said, “I have never hidden or denied that I hold a Canadian passport. I work in India, and pay all my taxes in India.”

“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. I work in India, and pay all my taxes in India,” he had added.
