Akshay Kumar not listed as the Honorary Citizen of Canada; Did he apply for a Canadian citizenship?
Advertisement

Akshay Kumar recently said 'Chaliye Chaliye' to a reporter when the journalist rightfully asked Kumar about his disappearance from the polling booth in Mumbai on 29th April, 2019. As most of the renowned faces from Bollywood cast their votes for the ongoing Lok Sabha Elections, Khiladi Kumar who now has become Karmyogi Kumar was nowhere to be spotted. Hence, when Akshay Kumar dodged the reporter's question with a 'Chaliye Chaliye' jibe, we literally took it seriously and went back in time. 

Now, we don't need the quantum realm like the Avengers: Endgame stars here, we just need our favourite Google to do the honours. Oops! Did we just say honours! Well, Akshay Kumar in 2017 had revealed to a news channel during the promotions of Toilet, Ek Prem Katha that he has been bestowed by an honorary citizenship by the Canadian Government, and hence, he carries the Canadian citizenship. But because Akshay chose to do a 'Chaliye Chaliye' on the reporter for doing his work, we google the list of Individuals who were given the honorary citizenship by the Canadian Government. This respectable list sees only 5 world leaders and sadly to AK's fans disappointment, he does not feature on that list. 
 
The list includes Raoul Wallenberg (1985 Posthumous), Nelson Mandela (2001), Tenzin Gyatso - The Dalai Lama (2006), Aung San Suu Kyi (2007, but revoked in 2018), Karim Aga Khan IV (2010) and Malala Yousafzai (2014). This list clearly doesn't not reflect Akshay Kumar or Rajeev Bhatia's name. 
 

Not only this but a 2012 article by Vancouver Observer states that how a list of people living in Canada for years are still stuck at getting their citizenship while the likes of Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar was granted one within weeks. Now, the question here is if he was given an honorary citizenship, why did it take weeks to grant it or the actor filled out the paperwork applying for a Canadian citizenship and then it took weeks to grant the same. In any scenario, the actor is facing a lot of heat considering he has chosen to be the face of films based on socio-economic issues and those that have a hint of patriotism. Though one must also state that Kumar for years has been a diligent tax payer of India and for years one of the highest too. In 2017-2018, he paid almost Rs. 30 crores as tax.

The actor is most likely under the scanner because of his recent non-political interview with Prime Minister, Narendra Modi and consequently, for not being able to vote because of his choice of citizenship. This makes us wonder why weren't a Shah Rukh Khan or an Aamir Khan an apt choice to be the interviewer especially when they have been doing a lot of charity, visibly helping farmers, doing meaningful cinema and also to top it are Indian citizens.

Anonymous : He’s lying even if you’re give honorary citizenship you don’t get a Canadian passport. It’s just a honor. In fact you’ll still need to get a Canadian visa to visit Canada. Now when Akshay has admitted to being A Canadian citizen people should also know to become a Canadian citizen you take a sworn oath in name of Her Majesty Queen of England (same family who ruled India) pledging your loyalty. Deshbhakt khiladi.

Anonymous : Akshay Kumar first said he holds dual citizenship and then said he his an honorary citizen. He lied on national television and according to him, people should feel proud of him for fooling them. He deserves all trolls because of his lies and fans calling KHANs anti-nationalists.

Anonymous : Akshay, Alia..these people who make the effort to apply, submit documents, verification etc. for Canadian/Brit citizenship MUST be having some solid reasons to do so. Strongly feel, they are/have been into some devious activities which is why they wanted a safe haven, like Mallya, Modi, Choksi people. That is for Akshay. Regarding Alia, she is just too dumb but comes from a dangerous family of Rahul Bhatt terrorist helper and likes, so probably Soni wanted herself and Alia to have a ready home outside India and flee just in time, wont be suprised if Soni's other daughter too is Brit. Anyhow, they should just stop lying things like dual citizenship (it doesnt exist in India, sister of Rahul Gandhi or what) and honorary citizenship (Akshay had the guts to say that, didnt he see the 5 global people who were bestowed citizenship, he stands nowhere in comparison to them) AND OWN UP to it. However, if they own up, they will be asked reasons for the same and their secrets/underground activities will be exposed, so they want to hush it up.

Anonymous : What I don’t get is why? Why would you want a Canadian passport when you spend your whole life in India? Is it just for the convenience of travel? It is much easier to travel globally with a Canadian passport but you’re a BW star so that shouldn’t be a problem anyways cause you travel with an entourage. I am Canadian, I as born in India but have been living in Canada for for 35 years. I love India and most of my family In India is in the IAF, I feel proud when an Indian does well anywhere and I worry when there is tension in India with Pakistan. I don’t earn and pay taxes in India, Canada is my home now. It is not Akshay’s home and has never been so why doesn’t he feel at home in India? That is the question that should be asked. He’s the biggest hypocrite out there!
