A Mumbai Mirror report recently suggested that only Tanuj Virmani had Akshara Haasan’s personal photos as the two were in a relationship, and she had shared some of her photos with him in 2016.
Following up on the report, indianexpress.com got in touch with Tanuj, son of veteran actor Rati Agnihotri.
While Tanuj Virmani did not comment on the report citing his busy schedule, his spokesperson maintained that Tanuj and Akshara are still friends. She added that their break-up was mutual, and they have remained good friends for years now. She further said they were on talking terms until two days ago, so there has been no bad blood between them. The spokesperson also assured that Tanuj was ready to cooperate with any legal proceedings in order to catch the main culprit.
Tanuj’s spokesperson said, “All I would like to say as Tanuj’s spokesperson is that we have been made aware of the situation. We know that Akshara had filed an FIR about the leak of certain images which were personal. We must first understand that Tanuj and Akshara were dating for a good number of years, but they are not together anymore. However, they are still very good friends.”
She added, “They talk. Until day before yesterday, they exchanged friendly banter. They have definitely been in touch. Luckily for us, we have those messages kept by Tanuj, which, if need be, we are willing to show. But, they are very friendly banter, just to prove that the break-up wasn’t an ugly one. They are still friends. If Akshara ever had anything of this sort in mind to accuse Tanuj, then I am sure she would not have been talking to him for so many months, almost years after the break-up.”
“However, having said that, Tanuj is absolutely aware of what Akshara must be going through. We are more than happy to cooperate with the police or with any kind of investigation, so as the culprit gets punished and gets caught. Tanuj is going to give it his all and whatever is needed of him. Legally, he will be more than happy to support.”
Kamal Haasan’s daughter Akshara Haasan had expressed her angst on social media, and had reached out to Mumbai police for help. She was unavailable for a comment on the same.
