Akshay Kumar Modi Interview HIGHLIGHTS: Prime Minister Narendra Modi touched upon a variety of non-political topics during his interview with Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar. It’s an open secret that PM Modi sleeps for just 3-4 hours a day, so how does he manage to keep himself fresh and fit amid such a gruelling schedule? PM Modi told Akshay Kumar that his body clock has become such it won’t allow him to sleep for long. “This is one thing that I intend to do after retirement…I will explore how to get more sleep,” PM Modi told Akshay Kumar.

Amid the rancorous campaign for the ongoing Lok Sabha elections where leaders are engaged in hurling all types of accusations on their opponents, PM Modi revealed that he enjoys good friendship with several opposition leaders including veteran Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad and Trinamool Congress chief and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
