The actor’s association with social causes has established his image as a patriot
Consumer insights firm TRA Research on Monday released a report that ranked celebrities across cinema, sports, and business based on trust among fans and followers. Film star Amitabh Bachchan ranked number one among Most Trusted Personalities, followed by Aamir Khan and Salman Khan. Popular actor Akshay Kumar, who was recently trolled online for his Canadian citizenship, ranked number four. N. Chandramouli, chief executive officer (CEO) of TRA Research, says that the field work for the study concluded in March so Akshay Kumar’s trust quotient would not have been affected by the revelation of his Canadian citizenship in May. “However, if we check his confidence among people today, it may show a dip. Controversies tend to impact trust," he says.
