Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar has served a defamation notice to a YouTuber who brought up his name while spreading fake news. The Laxmii actor filed a Rs 500-crore defamation suit against a YouTuber named Rashid Siddiqui for mentioning him in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case.
YouTuber Siddiqui was earlier arrested for spreading false news and dragging the name of Maharashtra’s CM Uddhav Thackeray and his son Aaditya Thackeray in Sushant’s case.
As per the reports, Siddiqui used digital media to allegedly deceive public and published fake news about several celebrities.
Siddiqui in his videos levelled allegations on Akshay and even said that the actor was unhappy seeing the growth of Sushant. He claimed that Akshay had “secret meetings” with Aditya Thackeray and the Mumbai Police and even helped Rhea Chakraborty to escape to Canada.
It is believed that Siddiqui made around Rs 15 lakh in four months and his subscribers also increased from 2 lakh to over 3 lakh.
