Gupta had helped Rajinikanth's family monetarily for an educational trust, a source informed Mumbai Mirror. But, when the financer went to Chennai to claim his money back, he was held for interrogations. "He was in the local jail for an entire day," added the source.
Mumbai Mirror's source revealed that Sushil had given Rs 2.57 crore to Latha. When asked Sushil about the entire matter, he claimed that all the allegations against him of threatening Rajinikanth's family was false. It was further reported that Sushil's manager had simply called on his behalf to ask for the money.
