Akshay Kumar on interviewing PM Modi: 'Even he was taken aback by questions I was...

Actor Akshay Kumar said ‘anyone would have jumped’ at the chance to interview Prime Minister Narendra Modi, reiterating that he approached the conversation as a common man. The actor spoke to the prime minister ahead of the Lok Sabha polls this year, inviting a wide spectrum of reactions.

Talking about his approach in the interview at the 17th Hindustan Times Leadership Summit, the actor said, “Anyone would have jumped at the chance of interviewing PM Modi. I went without any preparation and asked him questions as a common man.”

“Even the PM was taken aback by the kind of questions I was asking -- about jokes he tells and whether he likes mangoes. He was sweet enough to answer my questions, he could’ve had me thrown out,” he said, rejecting suggestions that the questions had been vetted by the Prime Minister’s team.

Akshay was also asked about the political ideologies that he and his wife, author Twinkle Khanna have, a subject that the Prime Minister had also broached during the interview. Making light of it, Akshay joked, “Yes, I and my wife have different ideologies. At my home the situation is such that we watch Republic TV one day while having dinner and NDTV the other day. Now we have reached a consensus and we watch ABP TV.”
