Actor and filmmaker Farhan Akhtar has dismissed recent reports that he has employed Sushant Singh Rajput’s former cook, Keshav. It was recently reported by a news channel that Keshav has been working for Farhan. Farhan took to Twitter to dismiss the claims. He wrote, sharing a screengrab of a TV news debate, “For the record: I have no person named Keshav working at mine. Unsurprisingly, another lie by a fake news channel famous for peddling lies. Please stop being so gullible. Just because a guy screams it out on TV doesn’t make it true."
Meanwhile, Sushant Singh Rajput's father and sister met Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Wednesday to thank him for his intervention in ensuring justice to the deceased actor, sources close to the family said. Rajput's 74-year-old father KK Singh told Kumar that had he not intervened, the Maharashtra government would have shut the case, news agency PTI reported. The Patna-born actor was found dead in his apartment in Mumbai's Bandra on June 14. His father lodged a police complaint in Patna on July 25 levelling various allegations against actress Rhea Chakraborty in connection with his death. The Bihar government recommended a CBI probe into the death case on August 4.
