Akshay Kumar refuted rumours of a Lucknow trip in a new tweet on Friday. A person wrote on Twitter that Akshay would be arriving in Lucknow for an event and the actor called it ‘absolutely untrue’.
“Update: Guru ji Shri @akshaykumar will be visiting Lucknow on 23 Jan to attend Business Icon Awards 2022,” the tweet read. Quote-tweeting it, Akshay wrote, “As much as I would love to visit Lucknow soon, this news is absolutely untrue.”
Akshay’s other fans joked that they too would start spreading rumours about his visit to their hometowns so he replies to them as well. “Aajse mai bhi fake news spread karungi (I’ll also spread fake news from today),” wrote one. “Kaash yeh fake news maine failaayi hoti (I wish I was the one to spread this fake news),” wrote another.
Akshay also wished his fans on Makar Sankranti. Sharing a photo of himself flying a kite, he wrote, “Meete gud mein mil gae til, udi patang aur khil gae dil (Sesame seeds mixed with jaggery, kites in the sky make our hearts swell) May #MakarSankranti bring new hope and joy in your lives. Bas vishwas ki dor pakad ke rakhna (Keep holding on the that thread of faith).”
Makar Sankranti is dedicated to Lord Surya (sun God) and marks the sun’s transit into Makara (Capricorn) raashi (zodiac sign). It marks the beginning of the harvest season when people worship new crops and share them with delight.
