India’s own stunt man Akshay Kumar expressed how he had to prove himself an Indian with a small notebook to prove it.
While speaking a panel during the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit 2019 on Friday, Akshay said that he has applied for an Indian passport. Currently, he has a Canadian passport and to comply Indian citizenship rules, he will have to give up his Canadian nationality.
“It makes me very sad that despite being an Indian, I need a small notebook to prove it.”
Kumar has often faced criticism for the nationalism that he portrays in his movies, considering that he is not an Indian citizen. The actor also narrated the story of what led him to acquire a Canadian passport in the first place.
