Mumbai: Akshay Kumar has served a defamation notice to a YouTuber from Bihar, seeking Rs 500 crore in damages for making "false and baseless allegations" against him in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case.

Kumar, in the legal notice sent through law firm I C Legal on November 17, said Rashid Siddiquee, in his YouTube channel FF News, has uploaded several defamatory, libelous and derogatory videos against him.

Our client Kumar states that because of your Siddiquee's scandalous, defamatory and derogatory videos, he has suffered mental trauma agony and huge loss, including loss of reputation and goodwill, which our client quantifies at Rs 500 crore, the notice said.

The said videos make several false and baseless allegations against our client (Kumar) that he helped (actress) Rhea Chakraborty abscond to Canada, that our client had secret meetings with (Maharashtra minister) Aaditya Thackeray and the Mumbai police Commissioner to discuss the death case of Sushant Singh Rajput and so on, it said.

These videos are false, baseless, defamatory and have been intentionally published to mislead the public and is just a cheap publicity stunt, the law firm said in the notice.

The superstar has asked Siddiquee to publish an unconditional apology, take down all the videos where references have been made regarding him and desist from uploading such clips in the future.

The notice said if Siddiquee fails to respond to the notice within a period of three days, the actor would initiate legal proceedings against him.
