The short clip was shared to promote the North America Tour of the Bollywood stars in March this year.
Akshay's post, however, did not cut ice with netizens who termed as "disrespect" to the India map.
While some Twitter users said that "This is too much Akshay", others said that "this kind of behavior is unacceptable in any country".
Some also raised questions about his "loyalties" by pointing to his Canadian citizenship.
This is too much Akshay… who are you challenging?
