Akshay Kumar BREAKS SILENCE On Getting TROLLED For Asking PM Narendra Modi About Eating Mangoes!
Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar lately has been making headlines for multiple reasons. His recent release 'Selfiee' has failed to win the hearts of audiences and has tanked at the box office. During its media interview, the actor has been talking about various aspects and in one of the interviews he spoke about the time he got brutally trolled for asking Prime Minister Narendra Modi about eating Mangoes. For the unversed, in 2019 Akshay went to meet PM where he asked him about eating mangoes.

Now, while talking to Aaj Tak, the Rustom actor broke his silence on the backlash he received and stated that the common person would have asked about things he admires and adores, and he did the same. Akshay was quoted saying, “Jab mai udhar gaya tha, tab main ek saadharan, mere dimaag mein uss waqt mango ka season tha, kuch prashna the wo maine aise hi poochein. Ghadi aise kyu dekhte ho, how do you like mangoes, apko jo paise milte hain apni maa ko dete ho, jo prashna ek normal, common person would like to ask somebody he admires and adores, maine wahi kiya.” ALSO READ: Akshay Kumar REACTS To His Films Getting FLOP At Box Office: ‘It Is My Fault 100%, Mai Koshish Kar Raha Hun Wahi Kar Sakta Hoon’

He added, “Maine kabhi ye nahi socha ki ye prashna sahi jaega ya galat jaega. Sach kahe toh unhone bhi kisine ye nahi kaha na PMO ke office se kisine kaha ki nahi aap ye nahi pooch sakte ho, ye pooch sakte ho. Jo aapke dil mein, mann mein aata hain, aap baat kariye aur maine kiya.”
Adding to this, the 55-year-old actor stated that there were people who asked him why he wore pink pants. “I asked them if the PM doesn’t like the colour. But he was so nice, adorable, and admirable. I also got to know that he has a good sense of humour.”

Meanwhile, Akshay’s latest offering ‘Selfiee’ also starred Emraan Hashmi, Nushrat Bharucha, and Diana Penty. Directed by Raj Mehta, the film collected just Rs 3 crore at the box office on its opening day. It became Akshay’s lowest opener in over a decade.
