Akshay Kumar has been quite frank and open about his inclination towards the current government. His upcoming film, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha also is based on an issue of national concern, rural sanitation. Of late, most of his films have been around issues and events that spark and instigate the spirit of nationalism — BabyAirliftHolidayRustomNaam Shabana to name a few. His upcoming film, Padman, again revolves around a social problem.

However, his wife, actress-turned-columnist/author, Twinkle Khanna, has been critical of current governance. Quite often, she didn't shy away from using sharp and caustic words against the power at centre.

This year, in May, when Khanna was trolled on Twitter saying that while she pens "progressive" pieces her husband meets PM Modi, she curtly replied saying:

Kumar has a very balanced view on this contrast of political opinions, especially between husband and wife.

Speaking to Bombay Times, he said, "Both Twinkle and I are not against anyone. She has her point of view and I have mine. That's the way things should be between a husband and wife. If I tell her to do things my way, it's wrong on my part. Such things can cause trouble and even break a relationship."
