Bombay High Court sent notice to Salman Khan, asked to respond on KRK’s notice
Actor Salman Khan’s film Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai also brought a lot of controversy with the release. The film was reviewed by self-proclaimed critic Kamal R Khan i.e. KRK, after which Salman Khan’s legal team went to court against KRK. Now in this case, the Bombay High Court has issued a notice to Salman Khan and sought a reply on KRK’s petition. According to PTI, in his petition, Kamaal R Khan is seeking quashing of a lower court’s interim order restraining him from commenting on Salman Khan, his films or his companies. Earlier in his statement, KRK criticized the trial court for passing such an order. He says that the court can stop him from making personal remarks, but he cannot stop a critic from giving an ‘unbiased review’ of Salman Khan’s films.
Recently, a single bench headed by Judge AS Gadkari sent a court notice to Salman Khan, his production house ‘Salman Khan Ventures’ to respond to Kamal Khan’s plea. In his notice, KRK has pointed out that ‘the interim order of the lower court is nothing short of a gag order’ and said that whatever he said in Radhe’s review was correct. In the film, 55-year-old Salman Khan is acting like a teenager.
Taking forward his point, he said, ‘The lower court should have kept in mind that you can not stop the viewer of a film from making any comment on the film or the character of the film. Be it a hit actor or a flop actor in the film. Meanwhile, Salman Khan’s spokesperson accepted the high court’s order. Saying that they have received copies of KRK’s petition. The team has now sought time from the court to read and understand the petition sent by KRK’s lawyer. Salman’s film Radhe was released on OTT platform Zee5. The film was not that much of a hit. As much as Salman’s movies are hits.
