All those with a foreign connect are in a position to prove their loyalty to India with Self-Proclaimed Nationalists creating such a situation. Amala Akkineni, who have foreign roots, is one among those sufferers.
Akkineni Bahu took to her social media handle to issue a clarification: 'I find some facts about my parentage being distorted. Hence the clarification. My mother is Irish and yet my mother in law always said she was more Indian in spirit than many Indians. My father is Indian - who grew up in UP and served in the Indian Navy. He was born in Dhaka, East Bengal, before it was called Bangladesh. Unless one understands history, one will never understand the pain caused by partition. Cmdr. M.K.Mukherjee, (Rtd.IN, VSM) is a proud Indian, and a Bengali'.
Amala commands so much respect with her animal welfare and philanthropic activities. Being a trained Bharatanatyam Dancer, She had given many live performances at different parts of the World. Simbhu's Father T Rajendran introduced Amala as an Actress with 'Mythili Ennai Kadhali'. She had done films with all the top stars of Tollywood and Kollywood in the 80s and 90s. Post marriage with Nagarjuna in 1992, Amala stopped acting and became an animal activist. She made a re-entry after a long gap with 'Life Is Beautiful'.
