Om Shanti Om row: Manoj Kumar files criminal case against Shahrukh Khan

Shahrukh Khan
Veteran actor Manoj Kumar has filed a criminal case in a local court on Tuesday, against Shahrukh Khan and Eros International, producers of 2007 hit Om Shanti Om, for re-releasing the film in Japan without deleting the controversial scenes taking a dig at him.

Reportedly, the actor has also demanded registration of a first information report against Shahrukh and Farah for alleged offences pertaining to cheating, defamation, criminal breach of trust and conspiracy, in his complaint before the Andheri Metropolitan Court. The case is related to a scene in the blockbuster movie in which Shahrukh had mimicked Manoj Kumar in a manner which the veteran actor found objectionable.

Manoj Kumar had earlier lodged a defamation case in 2008, but had withdrawn it after Shahrukh and Farah Khan apologised and assured that the objectionable scene would be deleted from the movie. "First time (late) Yash Chopra got Shahrukh Khan and Farah Khan to my house and they said they will remove all those scenes from the film and then the things were sorted. But later, when they didn't do so, I told Yash Chopra about it and he said they have stabbed him in the back," Manoj Kumar told the IANS.

A Mumbai court had also ordered that year that the scene lampooning Manoj Kumar be deleted from the movie before it was released and telecast on television channels. The actor further said that he doesn't have any personal clash with Shahrukh Khan, but when it comes to his self-respect, he can't compromise with it.
