Karan Johar may take legal action against online trolls who are threatening him

A few days back, Mumbai Police busted a social media racket by arresting a man who would use multiple fake accounts to not only sell them to increase someone else’s followers but also to create panic and mayhem in the society. Celebrities are attacked with the vicious messages of a select few people who think they have the right to write these things. And some are also getting physical assault threats.

Karan Johar may take legal action against online trolls who are threatening him

In the wake of the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, the nepotism debate has come to the forefront. Due to this, personalities like Karan Johar, Alia Bhatt, Salman Khan, Sonam Kapoor and others have been the target of a lot of hatred online. Recently, Alia Bhatt and Shaheen Bhatt took to their social media platforms to call out trolls who had sent them hurtful messages, abusing the entire Bhatt family. Another similar situation was faced by Rhea Chakraborty who was called names and subjected to abuses which she brought to light via her social platform.

We have also come to know that Karan Johar, who is facing a lot of the flak, is working on taking action against some trolls. The filmmaker has been consulting his lawyers to make sure that they take the right step against the trolls that are threatening him and his family members.

A source close to Karan Johar says, “Karan is actively pursuing legal action. A team of lawyers, as well as online tech experts, have come together to see this through. The tech people in the team are tracking the social media handles that are trying to intimidate him through violence. They want to unearth these accounts, fake and real and submit the evidence to the relevant authorities. The comments got out of hand when people started to threaten physical harm and abuse to his children and gave rape threats against his mother.”

Several other celebrities have filed FIRs when they were the victims of such cyber-bullying. The police have taken these complaints very seriously and are investigating the situation thoroughly.

Shekhar Suman reacts to séance expert claiming to have spoken to Sushant Singh Rajput’s spirit

The efforts to cash in on Sushant Singh Rajput’s posthumous popularity have now crossed all borders with paranormalist Steve Huff claiming to have “spoken” to Sushant. The video of Huff “talking” to the dead actor has gone viral all across the world, with Sushant’s fans sharply divided into believers and non-believers.

Shekhar Suman reacts to séance expert claiming to have spoken to Sushant Singh Rajput's spirit

What we know for certain is that Sushant’s family is not happy about the way his memory is being kept alive. A source close to the family reveals, “Sushant’s father would like a closure to this very tragic chapter in his life. He has lost his only son and instead of helping him to get over the tragedy people are constantly reminding him of his immeasurable loss. It is cruel and it must stop.”

Waking Sushant up from the dead by ‘summoning’ him from the afterlife is not an idea that Sushant’s family relishes. Gimmicks such as these must stop.

Shekhar Suman, who is pressing for a CBI inquiry into Sushant’s death, feels the Steve Huff angle to be utterly dispensable. “Let’s stick to the normal and not go into the paranormal. Let’s go by the CBI for investigation and not Huff and puff about the paranormal. If talking to the dead was a solution we’d have no need of any investigating agencies in the world.”

These are crimes, and by law no one, I repeat NO ONE should be subjected to this kind of toxicity and harassment. I request @cyber_crime_helpline @cybercrimeindia to please take necessary action.
