He was accused of dressing up like Gurmeet Ram Rahim and mimicking the self-proclaimed godman in the show “Jashn-E-Ummeed”.

His arrest was strongly condemned by various Bollywood celebrities like Rishi Kapoor, Anurag Kashyap, Sonakshi Sinha, Twinkle Khanna, Huma Qureshi, Vir Das and Boman Irani.

“Thanks everyone for standing by me through this traumatic time. Means a lot. Thanks to my fraternity, am proud of the industry I’m in,” Kiku tweeted on Saturday.
