Trending on Social Media: Akshay Kumar’s nationalism lasts only till mediocre non political interviews
Actor Akshay Kumar’s nationalism came under question after he was not seen casting his vote on Monday in the fourth phase of the Lok Sabha elections, especially since PM Modi reminded him to vote
Actor Akshay Kumar’s nationalism came under question after he was not seen casting his vote on Monday in the fourth phase of the Lok Sabha elections. This is especially worth noticing because just last month, PM Modi had tagged Akshay Kumar in a tweet, asking him to encourage voting.
"The power of a vote is immense and we all need to improve awareness on its importance. Thoda Dum Lagaiye aur Voting ko Ek Superhit Katha banaiye," the PM had said.
To which, Akshay Kumar had responded saying the "true hallmark of a democracy lies in people’s participation in the electoral process. Voting has to be a superhit prem katha between our nation and its voters."
His actor-author wife Twinkle Khanna cast vote at a booth in Juhu on Monday, but Akshay Kumar wasn't seen with her.
Akshay Kumar was in news only a few days ago with his "non-political" interview with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
But the hero of films like "Kesari", "Toilet: Ek Prem Katha" and "Airlift" which had nationalistic overtones, seemed to have given voting a miss.
Questions sent to Akshay Kumar's spokespersons about whether he voted were not responded to.
For a very long time, there has been speculation about the actor's nationality, with many claiming that he holds Canadian citizenship.
Twitterati had a field day with trolling Akshay Kumar for missing the voting.
