Farhan Akhtar has denied hiring a former employee of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput at his residence. The actor-filmmaker took to his verified Twitter account on Thursday to refute reports in a section of the media that made such a claim.

“For the record: I have no person named Keshav working at mine. Unsurprisingly, another lie by a fake news channel famous for peddling lies. Please stop being so gullible. Just because a guy screams it out on TV doesn’t make it true,” Akhtar tweeted.

His tweet came in response to a user’s tweet who wrote: “Breaking news...Neeraj at Sara Ali Khan’s house and Keshav at Farhan’s house. But why they r employing the suspects?? @FarOutAkhtar.” The user tagged the post with #CBIFiles302InSSRCase and #SushantSinghRajputCase.

While Akhtar has denied such claims, Rajput’s ‘Kedarnath’ co-star Sara Ali Khan is yet to come out with a statement. Keshav used to work as a cook at Rajput’s Bandra apartment, and allegedly served the late actor a glass of juice on the morning of June 14, hours before the actor’s death.
