Akshay Kumar having a face 2 face chat with PM Narendra Modi has taken the internet by storm. But on the other hand, it has left Indians divided with two different schools of thoughts. Some are absolutely enjoying this interaction between the action man Akshay Kumar and PM Modi, while some are critical of the selection process that film fraternity followed. Below is the answer in detail. Read it for yourself.
Reputed daily, Deccan Chronicle quoted a source closer to PMO saying,
“It was the Prime Minister’s own wish to be interviewed by Akshay Kumar, because the actor fits the image as a hero of the masses.”
And when it came to the question that why not Aamir and Salman, the answer was:
“Other stars like Salman Khan and Aamir Khan were also considered but Salman’s image was not really conducive to a patriotic non-political casual tête-à-tête with the PM. The same goes for Aamir.”
The source added,
“Aamir is keen on establishing his credentials as a true nationalist after the faux pas he committed by telling the world his wife wanted to leave the country. But as far as this historic interview is concerned, the PM wanted only Akshay Kumar.”
And when it comes to Akshay Kumar preparing the interview questionnaire for the leader of the nation, the source further revealed,
“He consulted everyone around him from his wife and children to his staff and family members with one question – ‘If you met the Prime Minister, what would you ask him?’ Based on what people said, Akshay prepared a sketchy mental questionnaire. But most of what we heard him ask PM Modi was impromptu and spontaneous based on the way the conversation flowed,”
In all, there is truth in the saying that your good deeds from the past always help you.
