Raj Thackeray, one of the most prominent politicians of Mumbai has launched a scathing attack on actor Akshay Kumar for taking another country's citizenship. Akshay is a resident of India, but holds Canadian citizenship.
According to Thackeray, Akshay is strategically investing his money in Canada, which he claims is probably a reason for him to take up the citizenship to begin with. "Akshay Kumar is not even an Indian citizen. He holds a Canadian passport and Wikipedia describes him as an Indian-born Canadian actor," Thackeray said.
Raj Thackeray has also blasted Kumar on his Canadian association and has alleged that he is working with the government on "covert propaganda". The MNS chief also said films like "Toilet Ek Prem Katha" and "Padman" were a covert propaganda for government schemes. Akshay, who starred in both the films, was trying to follow the footsteps of Manoj Kumar, an actor who was popularly known as "Bharat Kumar", he added. Akshay Kumar hasn't responded to the tirade till now. However, his spokespersons have said that he is unlikely to respond.
