Why Is Subramanian Swamy Threatening To Sue Actor Akshay Kumar?
New Delhi: Actor Akshay Kumar’s action-adventure drama film ‘Ram Setu’ scheduled for a theatrical release on October 24, 2022 coinciding with Diwali, has entered controversy much ahead of its release.
BJP leader Subramanian Swamy took to Twitter on Friday and announced that he is all set to sue Akshay and the makers of the film for the ‘falsification in the portrayal of the Ram Setu issue’ in their upcoming venture. The BJP leader also stated that he would be seeking compensation from the makers.
In a series of tweets, Swamy highlighted that the suit for compensation has been finalised by his associate. “The suit for compensation has been finalised by my associate Satya Sabharwal Adv. I am suing Akshay Kumar, actor & Karma Media for damages caused by falsification in the portrayal of the Ram Setu issue in their film for release,” he tweeted.
In another follow-up tweet, the politician attacked the actor over his nationality and tweeted, “If actor Akshay Kumar is a foreign citizen then we can ask he be arrested and evicted from his adopted country.”
The film stars Akshay Kumar, Jacqueline Fernandez, Nushrratt Bharuccha and Satya Dev and follows an archaeologist investigating the nature of Ram Setu. The plot revolves around the archaeologist, who has set out to check out whether the Ram Setu bridge is a myth or a reality.
The copy of the order of the case filed in SC by Dr. @Swamy39 to stop the demolition of Ram Setu has been used as a poster in the film Ram Setu. The name of the petitioner has been deliberately changed in the copy of the order which has been used as the poster of the film. 1/2 pic.twitter.com/0ZKQpb0ysr
