Viral Interview from ‘Sooryavanshi’ Promotions
An old interview from the time when he was promoting his film ‘Sooryavanshi’ has gone viral on the internet. Filmmaker Rohit Shetty was back then accused of making villains out of a certain caste or religion and while talking on it, during his interview with PTI, Akshay Kumar had claimed that he doesn’t believe in any religion.
- Akshay Kumar stated, ‘I don’t believe in any religion. I only believe in being Indian and that is what the film also shows.’
- ‘The idea of being an Indian and not about being a Parsi or a Hindu or a Muslim, we haven’t looked at it on the basis of the religion,’ he added.
A while ago, Akshay also got trolled for saying ‘I don’t know why people waste so much milk on Lord Shiva and Hanuman says mereko tel daal’.
