Akshay has established his image as someone who always encourages patriotism, which is evident even in his choice of films, like Kesari, Baby, Holiday - A Soldier Is Never Off Duty and Airlift.
The fact that he missed voting gave trolls a reason to mock him. A troll asked him, “When is the true blood real nationalist idol Akshay Kumar voting?” while other said, “Has anyone seen Deshbhakt @akshaykumar voting today ?#MumbaikarVoteKar”

Akshay was one of the prominent Bollywood celebrities whom Modi had tagged in a tweet, asking him to encourage voting. And the actor, in his tweet, had duly complied saying, "The true hallmark of a democracy lies in people's participation in the electoral process. Voting has to be a superhit 'prem katha' between our nation and its voters.”
