Police have also filed a case against Vibhor Anand, a Delhi-based advocate for sharing SSR-related videos and abusing the Maharashtra CM and his son.
The police have already registered a case against the YouTuber on charges of public mischief, intentional insult, and defamation. He has been given anticipatory bail and has been asked to cooperate with the Bandra police during the probe.
Lakhs of People Viewed Siddiqui's Post On Akshay Kumar
According to reports, lakhs of people viewed the post of Siddiqui on Akshay and Aaditya Thackeray. Already netizens are against Akki because he did not support Sushant Singh Rajput's death campaign against Rhea.
They not only slammed his Laxmii movie after its release but also forced the makers to change its name from Laxmmi Bomb to Laxmii. Naturally, the popularity of Akshay and other celebrities is taking a nosedive due to such fake news. Apart from Akshay, big stars like Salman Khan, Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone were also trolled and abused on social media after SSR's death.
