Speaking to ANI, when Akshay was also asked about India going international and about his cancelled visit to Cannes. He said, “All thanks to our PM who has taken us in such a huge way internationally. Things changing for our country.” Well, soon after the video surfaced, fans trolled the actor for crediting away Indian Cinema’s success.
During the same interview, Akshay Kumar also said, “As a common man, I just wanted to ask him (PM Narendra Modi) very simple, straight questions. It is not my work to ask about the policies, what he is doing and what not… I was honoured to sit with him and talk to him. The best part about our Prime Minister is that he knows how to mould himself. If he is talking to me he will mould himself towards me, if he is talking to children he will be according to their age. The ability to mould himself is a great thing in him.”

Irony is that a common man would have asked him better quality questions, especially questions about his failed policies.
