I have never hidden or denied that I hold a Canadian passport: Akshay Kumar

Mumbai, Mar 3 (IBNS): Actor Akshay Kumar on Friday said he could not understand why there is 'unwarranted interest' and 'negativity' about his Canadian citizenship issue.

" 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," he said in a statement.

Akshay did not vote in the Lok Sabha polls this year due to his Canadian citizenship.

"I work in India, and pay all my taxes in India. While all these years, I have never needed to prove my love for India to anyone, I find it disappointing that my citizenship issue is constantly dragged into needless controversy, a matter that is personal, legal, non-political, and of no consequence to others," he said.

Akshay said he will continue to contribute in his small way to make India stronger.

"I would like to continue contributing in my small way to the causes that I believe in and make India stronger and stronger," he said.

Akshay is known for working in several patriotic movies like Gold and Kesari.
