Akshay Kumar: Never denied Canadian passport but I work and pay all taxes in India
I have never hidden or denied that I hold a Canadian passport. I work in India, and pay all my taxes in India,” Akshay Kumar has said in a statement, four days after he was found missing from the polling booths in Mumbai.
Akshay Kumar might be the perfect choice to play new-age Bharat Kumar on the big screen, but his absence from voting booths in the fourth phase of elections didn’t go down too well with many. In no time, the actor, who wears patriotism on his sleeves, was trolled.
Now Akshay has released an official statement clarifying his Canadian citizenship. “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 Inda, and pay all my taxes in India,” Akshay said in a statement.
