Find Out Why These Bollywood Celebrities Won't Be Voting In Lok Sabha Elections 2019

The 2019 Lok Sabha elections are the hot topic in the country right now. From NaMo Tv to Narendra Modi biopic, 2019 has been a year of aggressive campaigning by the ruling Bhartiya Janta Party. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has urged the entire country to cast their vote. In fact, Modi took to Twitter and appealed to Karan Johar, Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Bhumi Pednekar, Ayushmann Khurrana, Aamir Khan and many others to encourage youngsters to cast their vote. In response, the Bollywood fraternity has pledged their support to the cause. Interestingly, there are some top Bollywood celebrities who won't be able to cast their vote. Read on to find out why!

1. Deepika Padukone

No Vote Deepika

The Padmaavat actress grew up in Bengaluru, but was born in Copenhagen, Denmark. She holds a Danish passport and hence, she can't vote in India.

2. Alia Bhatt

No Vote Alia

Alia showed her support and pledged all citizens to vote this election, but she can't cast her vote in India. The Raazi actress and her mother Soni Razdan hold British passports.

3. Akshay Kumar

No Vote Akshay

Akshay has been a pioneer in addressing social issues in India. He urges everyone to be a responsible citizen of the country. However, the actor has a Canadian passport even though he was born in Amritsar. Hence, he can't cast his vote in India. 

4. Sunny Leone

No Vote Sunny

Born Karenjit Kaur Vohra, actress Sunny Leone is a Canadian-born Indian-American. Hence, she can't vote in India.

5. Imran Khan

No Vote Imran

Not many know but the Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na actor holds an American passport and hence, cannot vote in India.

Apart from these, Katrina Kaif and Jacqueline Fernandes will also not be queuing up to cast their votes since they are not Indian citizens.
