Lok Sabha Elections 2019: John Abraham and Akshay Kumar are synonymous to ‘patriotism’ but didn’t cast their vote!
The season to vote is here! India is in the thick of the Lok Sabha Elections 2019 as the entire nation goes to vote in eight phases. The fourth phase of the Lok Sabha Elections 2019 is underway in Maharashtra and millions across the country are turning up at the polling booths to choose their leader. Along with the commoners, our celebrities, too, are making the best out of this opportunity as they have been exercising their democratic rights and, of course, flaunting their inked fingers.
From Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan to Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and others, a lot of stars were spotted outside their area’s respective voting booths in the wee hours of the day. While many stars stepped out and urged fans to cast their vote, we also had a few surprising exceptions. Ironically, Bollywood stars like John Abraham and Akshay Kumar, who are well-known for delivering some of the most patriotic Bollywood films, didn’t cast their vote. Well, the reason behind Akshay Kumar not voting isn't unknown to us. The Kesari actor doesn’t hold an Indian passport since he is an honorary citizen of Canada. However, his wife Twinkle Khanna did cast her vote.
