Akshay Kumar held a trial of his latest release THANK YOU for Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of Canada. The screening took place on Friday at a theatre in the city of Brampton. This was the first ever Hindi film that the Canadian premier has watched and Akshay was super excited about it, as told by the sources. He even danced with Canadian PM's wife.

Akshay plays an Indo-Canadian detective in THANK YOU and hence the movie was shot in Canada. This was one of the major reasons why the actor was keen that the Canada PM watch the film. "Akshay has the highest regard for the PM," added a source close to the actor who also confirmed the presence of prominent Canadian and Indian dignitaries as well at the screening.

It is believed that Akshay Kumar was deeply impressed with the Prime Minister's apology to the Sikh Community three years ago for the Komagata Maru incident. It was one of the PM's first acts after coming to power. The actor, who continues to be the Canadian Tourism Commission's ambassador for India for the second year, will promote Canada in India as a tourist destination. "Harper wants Indo-Canadian relations to improve and Akshay welcomes that" added a source.

Interestingly, Akki refers to Canada as his second home.
