While, Salman Khan's bail period in regard to the hit and run case is about to expire soon, the actor has got into another legal trouble, worth a whooping amount of Rs 250 crores.
Producer Vijay Galani has reportedly filed a defamation case against Salman for Rs 250 crores and it seems Galani has a fair amount of support from the Court.
As reported, the case relates to Salman Khan's film Veer, which was co-produced by Vijay Galani, who also happens to be quite close to the Khan family.
According to a leading publication, Salman Khan and Vijay Galani got into an agreement during the making of Veer which stated that Salman would get Rs 15 crores of the overflow (profit) made by the film, apart from the siging amount of Rs 10 crores which was already paid to him.
However, the movie flopped at the Box Office and as per the norms of the agreement, Salman would not be entitled to that Rs 15 crores as the film failed to make any profit. But, Galani alleged that Salman kept demanding that amount as Galani received multiple letters from Salman's office.
The producer also stated that Salman's office issued a non-cooperation letter to him against which he fought legally and the Court passed judgement in Galani's favour.
One leading publication quoted Galani saying, "Firstly, the overflow agreement was on paper and secondly, Veer showed no profits. So CINTAA ruled in my favour. Meanwhile, Salman got upset with CINTAA and so to please him, they issued a non-cooperation letter against me which was totally baseless."
"Court saw my papers. They called Salman's representatives to Court and asked on what basis they had been asking for money and why was a non-cooperation letter issued against me. They had no reply and thus, the Court has now ruled in my favour", Galani said.
He further adds, "I can't tell what I have gone through during the last three years. My mental agony and the money on lawyers has left me drained. I have filed a Rs 250 crores defamation case against Salman for mental agony, harassment, loss of face. Who will give me back the three years that I have lost?"
