Recently, 34 Bollywood filmmakers filed a civil suit against two news channels Republic TV and Times Now for constantly broadcasting degrading Farhan Akhtar who suggested belated action against the two news channels for making/publishing derogatory remarks. Now, a Bollywood Hungama report suggests a source revealed that it was Farhan Akhtar who took the initiative. However, Farhan doesn't want to take the credit. "All the other producers felt as disgusted by the attack by the two news channels. But if Farhan hadn’t taken the initiative they wouldn’t have come forward to finally take the slanderous foursome to court,” says the source.
