Akshay Kumar has been grabbing headlines, not for his new film but for opening up about his personal life. While the actor has often mentioned the reason behind getting Canadian citizenship, he recently expressed how he feels about being mocked for it.
Akshay Kumar recently appeared on Aaj Tak’s Seedhi Baat show where the host highlighted how the actor is known for his ideology. The journalist mentioned that Kumar is popular for his patriotism and love for the country. The host said, “You are known for your ideology. People say you are patriotic and love your country.” While the actor was seemingly happy listening to the same about him, he soon burst into tears and addressed that people still call him ‘Canadian Kumar.’ Wiping his tears, the actor said, “Lekin Canadian Kumar hoon (But they call me Canadian Kumar).”
