On Wednesday, actor and self-proclaimed critic Kamaal R Khan aka KRK tweeted that he has been issued a defamation notice by actor Salman Khan. He further claimed that the reason behind this was his opposing review of Salman’s latest film, Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai. However, now Salman’s legal team has issued a clarification as to why the defamation case was filed against KRK and it has got nothing to do with the movie review.
DSK Legal, advocates for Mr Salman Khan and Salman Khan Ventures said in a statement—
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. The defendant has been spreading malicious falsehoods and defaming Mr. Salman Khan consistently over several months, clearly with a view to draw attention to himself.
Mr. 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”.
The Hon’ble Court has been pleased to pass an order taking into account this statement made by Mr. Kamaal R. Khan’s lawyer.
Helmed by Prabhudeva, Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai also stars Disha Patani, Randeep Hooda and Jackie Shroff in pivotal roles. Though the film was majorly panned by the critics, it was streamed millions of times on Zee5.
