18 Aug - Akshay Kumar recently celebrated India's Independence Day by announcing that he is now a full-fledged Indian citizen.

On 15 August, the Bollywood star posted a photo of his citizenship certificate, and wrote, "Both heart and citizenship are Indian. Happy Independence Day! Hail India!"

Fans took to the comments to congratulate the actor, with some made a joke about Akshay getting tired of the trolling and memes of him being a Canadian.


It is noted that Akshay held a Canadian passport, a fact he confirmed in past interviews.

The actor stated that he applied for Canadian citizenship in the '90s following a slew of box office flops.

"I thought that 'Bhai, my films are not working and one has to work'. I went there for work. My friend was in Canada and he said, 'Come here'. I applied and I got in," he said.

"I had just two films left for release and it is just luck that they both became superhits. My friend said, 'Go back, start working again'. I got some more films and I kept getting more work. I forgot that I had the passport. I never thought that I should get this passport changed but now yes, I have applied to get my passport changed."
