Arbaaz Khan has decided to take a legal recourse after his name was recently dragged in Sushant Singh Rajput and Disha Salian death case. The actor has filed a defamation suit in Civil Court Mumbai after defamatory claims alleging his involvement in their death cases were made online. The concerned posts suggested that the actor-producer had been arrested and taken into unofficial custody of CBI. The court has now asked all the defendants to withdraw their online videos that suggest any sort of his involvement with the cases. Kaun Banega Crorepati 12 Premiere: Amitabh Bachchan’s Quiz Show Pays Tribute to Sushant Singh Rajput Through This Question on Dil Bechara.
