Producer Sandip SSingh, an alleged friend of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, has filed a defamation suit against the news channel Republic TV and its anchor Arnab Goswami. He has shared the screenshots of the legal notice, which was addressed to Arnab Goswami and the channel on his Instagram account.
The notice stated that the channel runs defamatory content with criminal intent against the producer, for extorting money. It also stated that the anchor was well aware that the late actor and Sandip were very well known to each other since their struggling days.
The notice said that the news channel had used Sandip’s name in all the debates, programs, and social media platforms, without any evidence at their end. The notice has included 16 such instances where the news anchor and the channel had tried to defame the producer. It also revealed that Sandip was asked by a channel official to benefit the channel financially, or he might be termed as the murderer of a late actor, which eventually surfaced on the news channel.
