When Karan Johar asked  Akshay what is the worst thing he has read about himself online, he said, "I don't read much about it. There has not been much negative written about me as well. I am lucky that way. At most, they write 'Canada'. Not more than that. I don't pay much attention." Karan intervened and said, "It's my favourite when trolls call you Canada Kumar." Akshay responded by saying, "Theek hai bula lo yaar."

Akshay has also been criticised for starring opposite heroines much younger than him. When Karan quizzed Akshay about it, the Samrat Prithviraj actor said, "They troll me for working with younger heroines because they are jealous. Why shouldn't I work with them? Do I look like I am 55? I don't understand what is the problem with it. They get jealous and write about it. Some media persons write about it or some trolls bring it up. I listen to it from one ear and let it pass from the other."
