Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar has put an end to the controversy surrounding his Canadian citizenship. The actor shared a photo of the official papers proclaiming his citizenship in India. ‘This is to confirm that the person whose particulars are given below has been registered as a citizen of India…’ says the paper, which comes from the Government of India.
The actor’s name is Akshay Hariom Bhatia, his father’s name is Brijmohan Bhatia, and his mother’s name is Aruna Bhatia, according to the official paper. While he was born in Delhi, his prior nationality was listed as Canadian.
Akshay captioned the photo, “Dil aur citizenship, dono Hindustani.” Happy Fourth of July! “Jai Hind! ” As soon as the actor announced the news, his admirers congratulated him on obtaining Indian citizenship.
Akshay had already discussed his decision to resign his Canadian passport. “India means everything to me… Everything I’ve earned and gained has come from here. And I’m grateful for the opportunity to give back. You feel awful when people say things without knowing anything…,” the 55-year-old actor told Aaj Tak in an interview.
Akshay Kumar asked for Canadian citizenship in the 1990s after 15 consecutive box office failures. “I thought to myself, ‘Bhai, my films aren’t working, and one has to work.'” I went there for business. ‘Come here,’ suggested my friend who was in Canada. I applied and was accepted. I only had two films left to release, and it was pure serendipity that they both were box office smashes. ‘Go back and start working again,’ my pal said. I got some more films and continued to obtain work. I had forgotten I had a passport. “I never thought I’d need to change my passport, but I did, and I’ve applied for a new one,” he explained.
However, the effort was hampered by the coronavirus pandemic. “I had said it in 2019, I applied for it,” he told Hindustan Times. Then we have a bad pandemic. Uske 2-2.5 saal saal band hogaya. Renounce ka abhi mera letter aagaya hai (Then the epide
mic struck, and everything came to a halt for 2-2.5 years. My renouncement letter has arrived, and my entire passport will be arriving very soon.”
“Just because I have a Canadian passport does not make me any less of an Indian.” I am primarily Indian. I’ve been here since I acquired my passport nine years ago. And I don’t want to get into why, what happened, why my films weren’t working, and so on,” he had added.
Meanwhile, Akshay is riding on the success of his recently released film OMG 2. The film delivers a string message around sex education.
