According to the new statement by T-Series, Mallikarjun Pujari, a local politician from Thane teamed up with the woman and tried to extort money from Bhushan Kumar and co-owner of T-Series, Krishan Kumar.

Mr. Krishan Kumar met him in the same hotel on 5th July 2021 wherein Mallikarjun Pujari threatened him that one girl will file police case against Mr. Bhushan Kumar and showed some WhatsApp messages which were neither from the number of Mr.Bhushan Kumar nor from any other member of T-Series team and demanded huge sum of monies."
