WEB DESK: The wave of racism is increasing nowadays. Previously, Shahrukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra and many others have faced racism abroad.
These days, Akshay Kumar is at the receiving end. Akshay told that he is facing racial taunts abroad but he has never bothered them because he doesn’t believe in giving any attention to such people.
When asked if he has ever faced racism, Akshay said,“Yes. It happens. But I don’t pay attention to it. Why should I?”
Coincidentally, Akshay’s character in his next release “Housefull 3” has to deal with a racist English football coach.
Akshay talk on this matter neutrally and says that racism is not limited to Indians only.
He said, “Goras also face it when they arrive here. You think it doesn’t happen with them? You feel we greet them with a smile and say we are so nice to you come give us a hug? Racism happens everywhere.”
While Akshay agrees that racism is bad, he is also thinks one needs to be strong enough to remain unaffected.
“Racism happens and it is bad. You get over it. Who cares? Don’t get serious. Why does it affect you? You should be strong enough and have the confidence to not let it affect you,” Mr. Kumar added.
