Won’t join politics, India has progressed under PM Modi: Akshay Kumar

Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar has said he has no interest whatsoever in joining politics, but would continue to contribute to “nation-building” through his films.

“I want to remain in the film industry, that way (I can) contribute more to nation-building” Akshay said.

The actor also added that India has made significant progress under Prime Minister Narendra Modi, after he was elected with a majority in 2014.

“We have made a lot of progress in the last three years under Prime Minister Modi, but the work is not over. I think I can contribute with my movies in the same way you contribute with your pen” the ‘Rustom’ star said.

Akshay awaits the release of ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ which hopes to spread awareness on PM’s Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. The film releases in theatres during the Independence Day weekend.

  • Hats off to u Akki sir…be the person u are. Love the scripts u r choosing. And beware srk fans, start promoting ur weekend oriented stars movie as much as u can bcoz it wont be able to sustain against the TEPK storm.

  • lol. bootlicking of modijii started.
    I appreciate what he is doing but dont like the way he is publicizing it.
    It seems like he is doing it solely for his movie promotions.

  • SRK doesn’t need to promote his film with the help of Narendra modi.his worst phase is far better than good phase of akki.

  • SRK was aware of TEPK content that’s why that fattu pushed his movie. He was unable to do face 2 face fight so decided to attack from behind. Shame

  • Can you please specify what India has progressed over the years.?GDP all time low.now India is no longer in developing countries…..

  • You can’t join too. A person must be a citizen of India first to join politics. If he is so patriotic then why did he even accept Canadian citizenship (he obviously knows India doesn’t support Dual Citizenship). It means he obviously has plans to shift to Canada post retirement from acting.

  • pros of TEPK
    1.akshay kumar and his recent successs
    2.simple social story
    3.and obviously political support
    cons of TEPK
    1.every multiplex audience have surely toiley at there house should they saw it coz having toilet at house is obvious then watching a movie about building a toilet can.t be paisa wasool movie
    2.why audience would go to see à story about toilet and also addd love story on it…it doesnot make sense for multiplex audience where as single screen demands more fun then a toilet
    3.it may be well made movie but me and many audience will not watch it at cinemahall.i would rather have 1 hour long bath then to watch it at hall
    AND ABOUT A TRAILER
    great expection but AVERAGE ..i was thinking abt social movement on PM MODI idea from a movie par yeh bhaisab khiladi kumae ,sadhi karke ghar mein biwi ke liye toilet banane mein busy hogaye.Non the less movie may be well made flim but why would i go to cinema hall to watch about building toilet where as nowadays a house consists more then 1 toilet and now toilet are even in every area of places..indicine do you agree with me or are u still on a mood of praising AKSHAY AND TEPK…???

  • I DENY THE FACT.. THAT INDIA HAS PROGRESSED UNDER PM MODI..

    THE PROGRESS I SEE IS PEOPLE HAVE BECOME MORE LOYAL TO THERE OWN RELIGION AND STARTED HATING MORE TO ANOTHER RELIGION…

    THE HATRED IN EVERY RELIGION HAS INCREASED..

  • NOW WILL TALK ABOUT BUSINESS AND JOB UNDER PM MODI..

    BUSINESS IS BEEN DOWNWARDS FROM THE TIME OF DEMONETISATION AND STILL THERE ARE NO SIGN OF PROGRESSING COZ GST IS STILL NEED TO BE IMPLEMENTED.. AND AS PER SOURCE IT HAS BEEN SHIFTED TILL SPETEMBER..

    JOB ARE LIKE FINDING MERMAID IN THE OCEAN… THERE ARE REGUKAR NEWS OF EMPLOYEES BEEN REMOVED FROM THE JOB..

    ECONOMY IS GOING DOWNHILL…

    NOW WILL TALK ABOUT SAFETY…
    PEOPLE ARE BEEN RAPED AND KILLED FOR SILLY REASONS..NO STRONG ACTION ARE BEEN TAKEN..

    WHERE IS THE PROGRESS GOING..

    PROGRESS IS ONLY FOR THE BLIND FOLLOWER OF OUR BELOVED MODI.. BUT SAD TO SAY IF WE LOOK AT THE BIGGER PICTURE WE INDIANS ARE GOING DOWNWARDS…

  • True Canadian Kumar will destroy Indian Nation by making such types movies
    in Global world such type movie didn’t work its not true pictures of India
    India is pure in natural aspects

  • This film gna realease indicine will say it would have been a game changer 2 or 3 years ago when toilets were being built its done now so why akshay promoting it like its the latest social change??? TEPK an independence day realease god help bollywood!!! Jolly llb 2 with all the hype opened average

  • Maybe his bank accounts.. but according to facts India has stagnated in comparison to growth in 2006 when they were competing with china

  • I really like him as an actor but I can’t bear the way he uses Modi and patriotism to promote most of his recent films… And trade is over hyping TEPK, trailer was OK nothing more. Just like Jolly LLB 2 the problem wath the drama part that seems forced. I know it’s a serious social problem but how can you make your audiance cry over toilets ??

  • Are u doing all this nation building for ur country or are u doing it to propagate a political party bkoz this boot licking is going overboard now.
