Mumbai: Small time Bollywood actor Anuj Tikku has been detained for allegedly killing his father Arun Tikku. Two more suspects are held for the brutal murder of the senior citizen.
Arun Tikku, 61, father of the actor, was a Ghaziabad-based businessman. He came to Mumbai to settle a personal issue involving his son Anuj who is also the CEO of a firm that deals with events, TV commercials and content for radio.
Investigation has revealed that Anuj was in South Mumbai on Saturday when the incident happened.
“Anuj is mentally disturbed and was receiving treatment at a hospital in Jaipur since the past four-five years,” said senior police inspector Dilip Rupawate, who was informed about Anuj’s condition by his cousin Samit Tikku.
A familiar face in the advertising industry, Anuj Tikku has also had a few Bollywood roles to his credit.
According to sources, Anuj’s father was not happy about his son living alone in Mumbai and wanted him to come back to Delhi. However, Anuj was determined to work in the film industry and refused, resulting in several arguments between the father and son.
