‘Sultan’ in trouble: Bihar man files a case of fraud against Salman, Anushka, entire movie team; Court to hear the matter on Tuesday
PATNA: Bollywood actor Salman Khan has landed in trouble for his just-released film Sultan.
A local resident Mohammad Sabir Ansari has filed a case of fraud against Khan in the local Muzaffarpur district court in connection with this Bollywood movie.
The court has posted the matter for hearing on July 12. Khan is a resident of Muzaffarpur town Bihar.
In the complaint case, Ansari has alleged the entire movie Sultan is based on his personal life for which he was promised to pay a royalty of Rs 20 crore (Rs 200 million). However, the picture was released even without paying the royalty money.
“I discussed the story with Salman in Mumbai after which he agreed to make a movie based on my life. He promised to give me a royalty of Rs 20 crore but the picture was released even without paying my royalty,” Khan alleged.
Khan’s lawyer Sudhir Kumar Ojha said the case has been registered against the actor, actress, film director and other under various section of IPC, wherein the accused persons have been charged with fraud and breach of trust.
“After looking into the complaint, the court has posted the matter for hearing on July 12,” Ojha told the media today.
The film released on Eid continues its fantastic run at the box office and crossed Rs 100 crore (Rs One billion) mark in just three days.
