Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar on Saturday, October 6, filed a written complaint with the Mumbai cyber police against a person and a YouTube channel, alleging that a false video has been put up by the same that featured the 'Boss' actor giving a statement on the ongoing controversy involving Tanushree Dutta and Nana Patekar. The actor accused the YouTuber saying that the video has been edited in such a way that it appears as though the actor has expressed his views on Tanushree Dutta's allegations against Nana Patekar.

In the complaint, the actor reportedly told the police that during the media interaction at an event, someone asked him about a well-known actress from Bollywood, to which he answered, but in the edited video that has been doing the rounds on social media, the name of the original actress was replaced with Tanushree Dutta's. As per media reports, the clip was removed from the YouTube channel soon after the complaint was lodged. Further investigation in the matter is underway.
