“The meeting was held before the pardon given to Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh in a blasphemy case. However, Akshay had denied all the claims.” PTC had quoted the actor saying, “I haven’t seen or read any such report, but if all this is written, I find it most amusing. I’ve never met Gurmeet Ram Rahim — ever in my life. I have met Sukhbir Singh Badal once or twice, that too at public functions. So all this is clearly somebody’s wild imagination working overtime.”
