Akshay Kumar slams critics, says 'take my national award back if you want'
Mumbai : Exasperated with critics over his national award win, actor Akshay Kumar on Monday said 'take it back if you want'.
"I've been hearing it for past 25 years, whenever someone wins there is some discussion around it. This is not new. Someone or the other always creates a controversy. 'He shouldn't have won, the other person should have.' It's okay. I've won this after 26 years, agar woh bhi aapka mann kare toh le lo (take it back if you feel like it)," Akshay Kumar said, reports news agency PTI.
49-year-old Akshay Kumar has bagged best actor award for his character in the movie 'Rustom'. Soon after the news was out, there were many raising eyebrows and posting question how he could win such a prestigious award amid stars like Aamir Khan, Manoj Bajpayee and more.
This was not the first time we saw Akshay Kumar reacting over the controversy, a few days back he had told Mumbai Mirror, "I have completed 25 years in the film industry and I've never called in a favour to bag a movie or an award."
On work front, Akshay Kumar is currently shooting for his upcoming movie Padman, which is produced by none other than his own wife Twinkle Khanna and stars Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte in the lead roles.
