Akshay Kumar lashes out at fan online
Reports in some daily said a person has been duping Askhay Kumar’s fans. The actor has come out to caution his fans against this, online.
There are a number of fan clubs in the actor’s name across social media platforms. And recently, there was news about one such fan club announcing false promises of jobs in the actor’s production house. Many people fell prey to this fraud and the news of the con made the actor extremely upset.
In such cases, celebrities take the legal path to get fraudsters punished, but in this case, when Akshay came to know about the incident, he chose to reach out to his fans directly.
He was seen tweeting, “Heard some upsetting news... some members of my “FAN CLUB” have been misleading some fans and duping them of money with false promises of landing an assistant directors job on my films.”
The actor had also added, “If you are my fan, you know my story... there is no shortcut to success. Please don’t be naive and don’t give away your hard earned money to crooks.”
Alternatively, targeting the conmen, he wrote, “To those involved in this scam, may you get what you deserve.”
