PTI, Jun 1, 2020, 8:32 AM IST

Mumbai: Actor Akshay Kumar on Sunday, May 31, dismissed reports that he booked a special chartered flight for his sister’s family amid the coronavirus-led lockdown and threatened “legal action” against such misinformation.

There were reports that Akshay booked a flight for Alka Bhatia, “his sister and her two kids, a daughter and a son, and her house help” to Delhi from Mumbai, in which no one else was allowed to travel.

Taking to Twitter, Akshay dubbed the news as “fake” and said his sister hasn’t travelled anywhere since the lockdown was announced.

“This news about me booking a charter flight for my sister and her two kids is fake from start to end. She has not travelled anywhere since the lockdown and she has only one child!” the actor wrote rubbishing the reports.

“Contemplating legal action, enough of putting up with false, concocted reports,” he added.

His tweet comes a day after the actor debunked rumours about fresh casting for the follow-up of his hit music video “Filhall”.

“I have heard a lot of fake news during coronavirus pandemic but now fake casting is also happening. #Filhall yeh padhiye #FakeNewsAlert #FakeCastingAlert,” he tweeted on Saturday.

On the film front, Akshay is awaiting the release of “Sooryavanshi” and “Laxxmi Bomb”. He also has “Prithiviraj” biopic in pipeline.
