Why Akshay Kumar opted for Canadian citizenship in the past?

Notably, Akshay Kumar had faced a dismal phase in his life when he delivered more than 15 flops. This was in the 1990s. The poor box office performance of his films pushed him to apply for Canadian citizenship. "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. “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.”

Coming to the work front, Akshay Kumar's work in OMG 2 is being highly praised. Akshay Kumar has portrayed the character of a Shivgan in the courtroom fictional drama.
