Ishaan Khatter’s father, actor Rajesh Khattar recently quashed rumours of bankruptcy and said that he was amused by these reports.
Last month, his wife Vandana Sajnani had revealed that they have used up almost all of their life savings in the past couple of years, to pay for medical treatment for the family.
Her statement went viral in no time and it escalated into rumours that Rajesh has gone bankrupt and is in a dire state financially.
Now, Rajesh has cleared the air and said that he did suffer a financial setback but that doesn’t mean he went bankrupt.
During an interaction with ETimes, he said that he has been fending calls from friends who have been asking him whether they have hit a rough patch financially. The actor stated that initially, he was amused by these reports, but they soon started affecting him.
Rajesh said that Vandana's statement was blown out of proportion and things went out of hand in no time.
However, what upset him further was the fact that his stepson Shahid Kapoor and son Ishaan Khatter were also dragged into it.
The actor had earlier tested positive for coronavirus and he has said that he is still reeling from the effects of COVID-19. He returned to Mumbai from Delhi a few weeks ago.
For the unversed, Rajesh has lately been in the headlines for several reasons. First, he welcomed a little munchkin into the world and later lost his father in April, 2021.
