Anil Bharath



Akshay Kumar has reportedly charged a YouTuber by the name of Rashid Siddiqui with a defamation case worth Rs. 500 crore after he named Kumar in relation to Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case.

Filmare reveals that a report in a leading daily stated that Siddiqui alleged in his YouTube videos that Khan helped accused Rhea Chakraborty escape to Canada and also had secret talks with Uddhav and Aaditya about late Sushant’s death. He also claimed that Kumar was extremely disappointed with the fact that Singh Rajput bagged the lead role in ‘M.S Dhoni: The Untold Story’ (2016), a project Kumar apparently was desperate to be a part of. The report reveals that Siddiqui had earned over Rs. 15 lakh in four months for his content on Singh Rajput’s death case.

Siddiqui’s earnings were reportedly a mere Rs. 296 in the month of May 2020 and in September, he earned a massive Rs. 6,50,898 with his videos. His followers also saw a sharp growth to from 1 lakh to over 3.70 lakh subscribers.
