At the trailer launch of Nanak Shah Fakir today in Mumbai, PadMan actor Akshay Kumar said that politicians should stop bringing religion into politics. 

When asked if he believes in the teachings of Guru Nanak and that if it should be adopted by all politicians who try to use religion to create vote bank politics, Akshay said, "I believe in it thoroughly. There is only one God and that God is yours. To bring religion into everything...it is not done. I hope everyone follows that."

He also spoke about Bollywood being a secular industry at the event.

Speaking about his association with the film, Akshay said that he has been associated for over a year as he believed in the message of the film.

He added, "This is such a film that I saw one-and-half years ago, this is the only film I saw twice on the same day once with my mother and the other time I saw it alone. It is a beautiful film with a beautiful belief."

Nanak Shah Fakir is distributed by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and is set to release on April 13.
