Akshay Kumar has recently approached the cyber police station at Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC), alleging that one of his old videos has been edited to make it seem like he is giving his views on the ongoing controversy involving actors Tanushree Dutta and Nana Patekar. The edited video, which was uploaded on YouTube, went viral. Police officers and Akshay’s spokesperson confirmed that the actor submitted a complaint on Friday.
According to sources, Akshay’s complaint states that the video was taken during a media interaction where he was asked about another actor but it was edited in such a way that it appears as if he’s speaking against Tanushree Dutta. “The narrative of the video was edited in a way that it looks like Kumar is expressing his views on the Dutta-Patekar controversy, which he never did,” said a police officer.
The police said he believes that such a video can hurt his reputation. “We tried to search for the video on YouTube, but could not get it; probably it was blocked or removed. We have asked him to produce a copy of the video. The inquiry is going on,” said an officer. Another officer said the culprit may face action under the Indian Penal Code and Information Technology Act.
