It has been 5 months since Sushant Singh Rajput allegedly ended his life on June 14, 2020. SSR’s family has been actively seeking justice for the actor and his family. Now in a recent twist, Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar has filed a defamation case against a YouTuber who allegedly named him in the Rhea Chakraborty case linked to the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. As per a latest report in Mid-day, the YouTuber named Rashid Siddiqui , who owns a channel named FF News, has earlier been arrested by Mumbai Police for dragging Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray and his son Aditya in the SSR case.
As per online reports, Akshay Kumar filed a 500 cr suit against the YouTuber for spreading fake news. The YouTuber in his videos alleged that Akki helped Rhea Chakraborty escape to Canada. Not only that, the YT channel owner also alleged that Akshay Kumar has been in talks with Maha Govt for Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, secretly. He went on to allege that Akshay Kumar was unhappy with SSR bagging MS Dhoni: The Untold Story film.
