Akbar didn't had any Indian lineage, he was destined to a Turco Mongol dad (Mughal head Humanyun) and a Persian mother (Hamida Banu Begum) which makes him ethnically of Turco Persian beginning, he didn't had a place with any ethnic gathering of India. He didn't had even a drop of Indian blood in his veins

Another significant viewpoint is culture, upto Babur culture of mughals was Turkic Timurid under Humanyun it got profoundly Persianized and onwards Akbar it got Indo Persian because of military and political coalitions with Indians (Rajputs) anyway that doesn't imply that they lose their Turkic roots or got Indianized even after Akbar, it just got eclipsed yet kept it's particular worshipped position additionally Mughals viewed themselves as Timurids or Gurkani.


Another factor is feeling of belongingness, mughals (counting Akbar) viewed themselves as unrivaled race of Timurid birthplace and consistently distinguished themselves as Turks not Hindustani but rather as leaders of Hindustan, they accepting India as vanquished land which they have bequest on because of their Timurid source.


In expressions of Will Durrant


Akbar was a greater amount of Turk then Mughal or Mongol


So to summarize everything Akbar was of leader of Turkic (unfamiliar) cause who administered Hindustan


Along these lines, no doubt Akbar was an outsider himself anyway he was the one answerable for beginning Indianization of Mughals both genealogically and socially while keeping up it's qualification and expected supremacism.
