    Aamir Khan sues Filmfare for Rs.21 crore

    By Staff

    Actor Aamir Khan has sued Filmfare for Rs.21 crore for using his photograph without his permission and attributing false quotes to him. The legal notice was sent to the publishers of the magazine Bennett, Coleman & Co Ltd on February 22.

    The bone of contention is an advertisement that appeared in the Times of India on February 20 in which the actors photograph was used to promote the Filmfare Awards. The following quote was attributed to him. "I incited a revolt to win her over!" His lawyer stated that Aamir Khan never said the words. He had never given permission to use his photograph to promote the awards function.

    In his legal notice to the publication, the actor has demanded a compensation of Rs.21 crore for tarnishing his image. He has also asked Times of India to publish an apology with a week stating that 'he does not promote or endorse Filmfare or Filmfare Awards.' When contacted, the legal advisor of the TOI group denied any such reports. According to him, he is not aware of the notice. Aamir Khan on the other hand is presently away in Poland, shooting for Kunal Kohli's Fanaah.
