Mumbai: The defamation suit Salman Khan has filed against Kamaal R Khan (KRK) is not related to the latter’s review of the Bollywood superstar’s recently-released film Radhe.
KRK, an actor, producer and self-proclaimed critic, had claimed that Salman filed the case as he didn’t like the review of his film.
Salman’s lawyers on Thursday clarified that the case was filed in connection with KRK’s allegation of corruption and money-laundering against the former.
“Mr Kamaal R Khan, the defendant, has put out a series of tweets and videos alleging that Mr Salman Khan has sued him for defamation because the defendant reviewed the film, Radhe. This is incorrect. The suit has been filed as the defendant has been publishing and endorsing defamatory allegations, including that Mr Salman Khan is corrupt, that he and his brand Being Human are involved in fraud, manipulation and money laundering transactions, that he and Salman Khan Films are dacoits,” DSK Legal, advocates for Salman and Salman Khan Ventures, said in a statement.
“The defendant (KRK) has been spreading malicious falsehoods and defaming Mr Salman consistently over several months, clearly with a view to draw attention to himself. Kamaal R Khan’s lawyer made a statement in Court today that Mr Kamaal R Khan will not put any remarks of defamatory nature against plaintiff on social media till next date,” it further said.
After Salman filed the complaint in a Mumbai court, acknowledged the development and tweeted: “Salman Khan files a defamation case against me for Radhe’s review!”
