Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar took a candid interview of Prime Minister Narendra Modi at 7 Lok Kalyan marg, the PM’s residence. In the interview PM Modi spoke a lot about his life and experiences. The interview was about everything but politics and election. Here are some of the interesting moments of this interview with Akshay Kumar:
Akshay Kumar asked PM Modi, “You sleep only three-four hours, a body needs at least seven, right?” PM Modi responded, “When President Obama met me for the first time he asked me why do you do this? Now whenever we meet he asks me have you increased the amount you slept or now?”

Furthermore, PM Modi also said that he never thought that he would become Prime Minister of India. “The kind of background I come from even if I would have got a decent job my mother would have been distributing laddoos among neighbours. This is unnatural for me, sometimes I am amazed why the country loves me so much,” said Modi.
PM Modi revealed to Akshay Kumar his love for Mangoes. “I love mangoes. Gujarat has a tradition of Aamras as well,” PM Modi said. “While growing up, we did not have the luxury to buy mangoes. But I loved plucking mangoes directly from the tree. It used to be the best,” PM Modi said.
