Kamaal R Khan sued for 'defamatory allegations' not for 'Radhe' review, clarifies superstar's legal team

After Kamaal R Khan claimed that Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has filed a defamation complaint against him over his review of recently-released film 'Radhe', the actor's legal team on Thursday issued a clarification.

A statement from DSK Legal, advocates for Salman Khan and Salman Khan Ventures, read: "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," they added.

DSK Legal also stated that Kamaal R. Khan’s lawyer, on Thursday, in a statement in Court, said that the former 'Bigg Boss' content “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," the statement concluded.

For the unversed, a legal notice in regards to the complaint was sent to Kamaal Khan by the legal team of the superstar on Monday.

Kamaal Khan had acknowledged the same and tweeted, "Salman Khan files a defamation case against me for Radhe's review!"
