Shahrukh’s ‘Om Shanti Om’ upset Manoj Kumar
The legendary actor who pulled the film’s makers to court
Shortly after the release of Om Shanti Om, the makers found themselves in a pickle. The blockbuster had managed to miff Manoj Kumar. The legendary actor wasn’t happy with the way he was spoofed in the film. If you’ve missed the movie and are wondering what the fuss was about, catch it on YouTube Boxoffice.

While people do relate the actor to his style, Manoj Kumar was annoyed by the way it was portrayed in the movie. So, he filed a case against the makers. On hearing this, Farah Khan and Shahrukh Khan rushed to meet Mr Kumar and make amends.
