Kamaal R Khan is known for making controversial statements. After, Salman Khan Manoj Bajpayee has filed a defamation case against him.
Actor Manoj Bajpayee is best known for his films Gangs of Wasseypur (2012), Bhosle (2020) and Aligarh (2015), and his latest web series ‘The Family Man’. On Tuesday, he filed a criminal defamation case against actor Kamaal R Khan in an Indore court. According to Manoj Bajpayee, the tweets posted by KRK (Kamaal R Khan) have tarnished his image.
Manoj Bajpayee’s lawyer said the actor appeared before the court to record his statement. He filed the criminal complaint in the court of judicial magistrate first class (JMFC) against KRK under IPC section 500 (punishment for defamation). In a press release, he urged the court to register a criminal defamation case in the matter, the actor’s lawyer Paresh S Joshi said.
Kamaal R Khan posted a tweet in July 2021. In a series of tweets, KRK had compared Manoj’s hit show The Family Man to ‘soft porn’ and had also commented on his wife and about his daughter’s relationship status. In his tweets, KRK had called the actor a ‘ganjedi (stoner)’ and charsi.
KRK, in his tweet, had written, ‘I am not a Lukkha and Faaltu in life, So I don’t watch web series. Better you ask Sunil Pal. But why do you like to watch a Charsi, Ganjedi Manoj? You can’t be selective. If you hate Charsi Ganjedi in Bollywood, so you should hate everyone.’
Apart from Manoj Bajpayee, ‘The Family Man 2’ also starred Samantha Akkineni, Priyamani, Sharib Hashmi, Sunny Hinduja, Shreya Dhanwanthary, Sharad Kelkar, and Seema Biswas in pivotal roles. The popular series also featured Ashlesha Thakur and Vedant Sinha.
