Last month, Salman Khan filed a defamation case against self-proclaimed critic Kamaal R Khan. This came after KRK reviewed Salman's latest release Radhe. Salman Khan's lawyers revealed that KRK has been making defamatory remarks against Salman, thus the case. Now, the latest update in the case is that Salman Khan has requested the court to initiate contempt action against Kamaal R Khan for continuing to make defamatory statements despite the court asking him to not do so.
In the last hearing, Kamaal R Khan's lawyer Manoj Gadkari has said that his client won't make defamatory tweets or remarks against the actor until the next hearing. However, Salman's advocate Pradip Ghandy told Additional Sessions Judge C V Marathe that KRK continued to make defamatory remarks despite the assurance. Therefore, contempt action should be carried out against him.
Earlier, Salman's lawyers from DSK Legal had released a statement giving details about the case. The statement 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. 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."
