What happened to the 32 year-old man who had claimed to be Aishwarya Rai's son?

Last year, a video of a 32-year old man, Sangeeth Kumar had gone viral, where he had claimed to be Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's son. It was a 2018 video, which was ridiculed by netizens as the man mentioned that he was born to Rai in London through IVF in 1988. This means that Rai was just 15 years old then. He even blamed his relatives for destroying his birth documents. He was trolled online for these bizarre claims. Aishwarya had not commented on any of this.

Later, Police reported that the man is mentally ill. Some called this a publicity stunt by the Bachchan's. Others questioned why such claims are made against the family. According to an article on dailyo.in, there were few other weird claims earlier on the Bachchan family like- Aish had tried to commit suicide due to her in-laws. Also, in 2007 a model, Jhanvi Kapoor created a buzz as he claimed that she is Abhishek's wife. However, no further pieces were published on Sangeeth Kumar.

Was he punished for it or was he given aid by authorities? This throws a light on how topics concerning mental health are received in our society. Kumar was ridiculed and ignored. Though his claims were impossible, do you think that this was actually some publicity stunt?
