Akshay Kumar interviews PM Modi…It's a laugh riot, DON'T MISS this VIDEOnewstolive - April 25, 2019 56 0 COMMENTS
New Delhi, Apr 23: Akshay Kumar is truly Khiladi number one. His latest Khel has set Twitter on fire that’s because his partner in Khel is none other PM Narendra Modi.
Akshay has leaked video of his interview with PM Modi, which he says is non-political. In a true Bollywood style, he has released the trailer on his Twitter. The “trailer” gives enough hints that Akshay has been able to dig out hitherto unknown facts about PM. The full interview will be released on Wedneday.
Coming in midst of elections the interview is likely to give a huge fillip to BJP as Akshay has a massive fan following.
On Monday, Akshay had created a flutter by saying he is getting into “unknown and uncharted territory” with something he had not done before, sparking furious speculation on social media that he is about to plunge into politics.
Akshay followed up his first tweet with another tweet several hours later, saying he is not contesting elections. But that did little to quell the speculation in this election season.
“Getting into an unknown and uncharted territory today. Doing something I have never done before. Excited and nervous both. Stay tuned for updates,” said the actor, who has starred in a series of patriotic and social issue-driven films in recent years.
The Bollywood actor of films like “Padman” and “Toilet:Ek Prem Katha” has also featured in government ads on issues such as menstrual hygiene, anti-smoking and traffic safety rules.
After the first tweet in the morning, the actor said he is not contesting elections but kept the suspense alive with a second, cryptic message in the afternoon.
“Grateful for all the interest shown in my previous tweet but just clarifying in light of some wild speculation, I am not contesting elections,” he said.
Several people on social media said he will enter politics even if he doesn’t contest.
Many in the industry believe “Toilet: Ek Prem Katha” is a shout out to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s pet project “Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan”.
Akshay won the National Film Award for his performance in “Rustom”, in which he played a patriotic Navy officer. The award created some furore as many believed his award was a result of his closeness with the ruling government.
