Madras High Court drops defamation case against actor Rajinikanth
December 22, 2018
India's biggest superstar Rajinikath can now breathe a sigh of relief. The Madras High court dismissed criminal defamation proceedings against Rajinikanth. The case was filed by financier Mukunchand Bothra. According to reports, Rajinikanth's daughter's father-in-law Kasthuri Raja had borrowed Rs 65 lakh from him. Raja assured Bothra that Rajinikanth will repay the amount to him in case he was unable to.
Justice N Anand Venkatesh dismissed the petition pointing out that Rajinikanth cannot be sued under such accusations. The rejection plea showed that the petitioner clearly wanted to defame and malign the name of an internationally acclaimed celebrity like Rajinikanth.
His fans took to social media to express their happiness by posting photos of the actor and glorifying him.
