Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar has filed a defamation case of Rs. 500 crore against a YouTuber. The YouTuber by the name of Rashid Siddiqui accused Akshay of helping Riya Chakraborty escape to Canada. He also posted several fake videos on his YouTube account related to the death of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput. He was also accused of dragging Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray and his son Aditya in the Sushant Singh Rajput case.
Siddiqui is a civil engineer from Bihar who runs a YouTube channel called FF News where he provides the latest collection of Bollywood videos, news videos, Filmy reviews videos, and much more, according to his YouTube Bio. He has said many controversial things in the past and recently rose to fame on his videos on the SSR suicide case. According to a report by India.com, Rashid Siddiqui’s subscriber count grew from 1 lakh to over 3 lakhs in a matter of months and he has earned more than Rs. 15 Lakhs by posting on the SSR case.
According to reports, Akshay Kumar has filed a case of Rs. 500 crores against this YouTuber for spreading fake news about him. In his video, Siddiqui accused Akshay Kumar of helping Riya Chakraborty escape to Canada. Not only this, but the owner of the YouTube channel also alleged that Akshay Kumar is secretly talking to the Maharashtra government in the Sushant Singh Rajput case. Rashid Siddiqui claimed in his video that Akshay Kumar was not happy when Sushant Singh Rajput received big-budget movies like ‘MS Dhoni – The Untold Story’.
Sushant was found dead in his Mumbai apartment on June 14. The case was under the Mumbai Police who declared that the actor had committed suicide. But after a huge demand from his fans for more probing in the case, the CBI subsequently took over the case and since then the Narcotics Control Bureau and Enforcement Directorate has also joined this investigation.
