Akshay Kumar’s voting controversy is a non issue

Whether he is a Canadian or an Indian citizen is not the issue. The point here is, does the fact Akshay Kumar didn’t vote make him any less patriotic than he would have been after voting?

Akshay Kumar’s voting controversy is a non issue

“No,” says a close friend of Akshay.  “He has never lied about his nationality, never hidden the fact that he has a Canadian passport. By not being able to vote he doesn’t lose his right to make patriotic films. The logic is absurd.”

Even more absurd is the uproar over Akshay’s silence on the issue. Says a source close to  Akshay, “It was one random media encounter on Tuesday after the family screening of Akshay’s  wife’s nephew’s film (Blank). Akshay came out and was answering questions about how he liked the film when this (question on his not voting) was dropped on him. Akshay will speak on the issue of his  voting rights. But not randomly. He needs to evaluate the situation and weigh every word.”

Sources close to Akshay say he’s very distressed by the controversy. “He has been upset since this non-issue was blown up. Many of Akshay’s well-wishers feel this controversy has come up  because of his interview with Narendra Modi to undermine his credibility. To make the people feel  he was unfit for the job (of interviewing the PM),” says the close friend.
