“I request the media to not make headlines using my name as we are NOT related and this is causing hurt and confusion for my own family and the people I have a professional relationship with,” he said. 

Arjun added that he has faith in the legal system and urged everyone to let the law take its course. “Kindly refrain from attaching my partner's and my name to something we have nothing to do with.
