New Delhi, June 22: Bollywood actor Salman Khan has landed in fresh trouble. At a time when he is already having tough time in black buck and hit and run cases, this will further create a big problem for the star.
Reportedly, a defamation case has been filed against the actor. The case was filed by Vijay Galani, who had directed Salman and Zarine Khan starer 2010 film Veer.
If reports are to be believed a defamation suit of huge amount (Rs 250 crore) has been filed by the director.
Aggrieved Galani was quoted by DNA as saying," I agreed to give Salman a signing amount of Rs 10 crores for Veer. In his entire career Salman had not received this kind of a signing amount. In fact his entire fee for Yuvraaj and Wanted and other films during that period was around 7-8 crores each".
He further said, "Even Salim Saab said this signing amount was unprecedented. Besides this amount we agreed that Salman would get Rs 15 crores if and when there is an ‘overflow'(profits made by the film). Salman completed the film happily. And I sold the film to Eros Entertainment.Eros, Salman and I drew up a tri-party agreement that the first overflow amount of Rs 15 crores would go to Salman."
Reportedly, film didn't work well. Three months after the film bombed at the box office, dejected Salman khan went to Galani and asked him for the original agreement. The latter did the same but it didn't augur well with Khan.
He complained about the matter to Cine and TV Artistes Association which ruled in the favour of producer. Not satisfied, khan then went to Federation of Western India Cine, Association, which snubed Galani and ordered him to cooperate.
Peeved Galani who claims that he had good relations with Khan family in the past, has now filed defamation suit against Salman Khan for maligning his reputation and misconduct in professional behavior.
