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.
