Akshay Kumar has taken legal recourse after a YouTuber was arrested for raking in lakhs for posting misleading news in Sushant Singh Rajput's death case on the video platform. Rashid Siddiqui, a 25-year-old civil engineer and youtuber from Bihar, has been accused of defamation, public mischief and intentional insult in a case filed by Shiv Sena's legal cell, reported Mid-Day. Siddiqui reportedly, through his videos, maligned the image of Mumbai Police and made videos on various conspiracy theories in the late actor's death case. 

Not just that, he also named Akshay Kumar on several occasions in his videos and levelled various allegations. As per the report, Siddiqui claimed that the 'Padman' actor was unhappy with Sushant bagging big films like MS Dhoni and that he conducted 'secret meetings' with CM Uddhav Thackeray's son Aditya Thackeray and the Mumbai Police. 

Siddiqui also linked Akshay Kumar and Rhea Chakraborty who was being investigated in the case and alleged that the actor helped Rhea to escape to Canada. Akshay has now filed a Rs 500 crore defamation suit against Siddiqui. 

The report revealed that Siddiqui earned almost close to Rs 15 lakh in a span of six months and his subscribers also grew from 2 to over 3 lakh now. "The actor's death was used as an opportunity to earn money as people were curious about the case. Once the media started reporting different theories, YouTubers too grabbed the opportunity and started posting fake content. They maligned Mumbai police's image and earned money during the lockdown," a senior IPS officer told the portal.

That's the way to go. People took things for granted and started maligning stars every which way just for popularity and money and now its time for those maligned to fight back.

I agree there were many fake news on these youtube channels, and people used Sushant for their own good although we all know that SSR and Disha Salian deaths were fishy, one can clearly see the problems in reports, anyway they both are gone, life goes on, RIP Sushat and Disha. I just hope god punishes the real culprits..

Who will sue Bollywood stars - almost ALL of them - for the HUGE amount of vulgarity and anti-Hindu content they put out to our youngsters? Who will sue them for influencing our young women into thinking its "My Choice" to have an extra marital affair? Who will sue them for demonizing everything that is sacred in Hindu Dharma through violent series like Pataal Lok, A suitable boy, Mirzapur, etc. that have NOTHING to do with reality? Who will sue them for acting in Tanishq ads that reduce our sacred festivals to some dress us party or posting "majama in my pajama" type vulgar vishes during Navratri????? The YouTuber is wrong for spreading wild theories maligning others and is getting his karma. But Bollywood too has a LOT to atone for, especially crafty, anti-Hindu Canadian Kumar who asks us to drop Vaishno Devi pilgrimages while he visits Ajmer Dargah. I sincerely hope everyone of them gets their Karma real soon!!

BTW Akshay Kumar does not drink or take drugs

Anonymous 1 week ago

You are correct ....I stand with your views as i too believe in that ...bollywood is spreading hindutvaphobia and anti nationalist ideas . Instead of inspiring youth it is teaching them to take drugs and dance on item number , disrespect women and girls with vulgar lyrical songs and dialogues ... And instead of taking some great topics of our countries they make lovestories . And yes how can i forget , they blindfold people to follow them. With defamation complain , he defamed himself only .
