Akshay Kumar has become the target of social-media trolling and hate, after a video of him saying that Toronto is his home has gone viral on the internet. This comes just after Akshay’s clarification that he doesn’t need to prove his love for India, just because he might hold a Canadian passport.
Soon after his clarification, the video surfaced online. In the clip, Akshay can be seen addressing a crowd saying, “I must tell you one thing, ‘This is my home. Toronto is my home.’ After I retire from this industry, I’m going to come back here and stay here.”
Before this, Akshay had released a statement on Twitter. “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.
