An entertainment portal put out a rather shocking news yesterday about Rajat Tokas, who is currently seen playing the titular role of Chandra Gupt Maurya in Star Plus’s periodic drama Chandra Nandni. They reported that the actor’s closeness to Tanu Khan, who plays his wife Helena on the show, has got everyone talking in the industry. They quoted one of their sources saying, “Rajat and Tanu are inseparable. In between takes they spend time in each other’s vanity vans and even leave the sets together after pack-up.We also hear that Rajat and Tanu recently enjoyed a night-out together.”

The news piece caught everyone’s attention for the much married man has always been known for leading a low-profile life. He got married to his long-time girlfriend Srishti Nayyar in 2015 in a close-knit ceremony. The actor has always managed to keep his personal life away from the public eye. One wouldn’t even find many pictures of them on his social media handles as he doesn’t like indulging in PDA. He is not usually spotted in events and social gatherings and is known to keep to himself on the sets too. Hence, the news came as a major shock for his fans.

However, Rajat took to twitter today and slammed the news portal for trying to malign his image by carrying false news about his personal life. Without divulging into the nitty-gritties of the matter, the actor dropped a hint of filing a defamation case against them.

Here are his tweets – 

To me, there’s no such thing as cyber bullying as if someone’s hurting anyone’s sentiment by being negative, then just simply avoid that.

I can easily react and have a nice defamation case filed but then again. It’s all pointless as they’ll be happy knowing that they’ve hurt me

Of which, now since am calm and in my peace, no one has power to do so. Nothing can or ever will stop me from doing my work.
Am here to stay

Speaking about her equation with Rajat, Shweta Basu Prasad (who plays Nandni on the show) said in an earlier interview, “He is a very dedicated actor but he is not a friend. A very good actor. But on sets, our conversation is strictly limited to our dialogues and nothing beyond. We aren’t friends. But we work as a family but the two of us are strictly professional is nothing more I talk to him about.”
