The Bombay High Court has censured Kamal Rashid Khan alias KRK for his controversial and defamatory tweets against producer Vashu Bhagnani, his family, his business, his profession as well as all his projects.
KRK has been stopped by Bombay Court for putting any further tweets, false allegations against Vashu Bhagnani. According to the sources, Bhagnani has moved to the court and has filed Rs. One crore in damages after coming across all the hateful tweets. The producer also claimed that those tweets were made to destroy his reputation in the industry.
After hearing the submissions for urgent relief, Justice AK Menon was of the conclusion that the “tweets do not refer to the contents of the film and very clearly refer to the plaintiff himself and the effect that plaintiff has in Bollywood. Several of these tweets are prima facie slanderous and actionable.”
Justice Menon thus restrained Khan from “publishing, circulating or repeating the allegations and tweets and videos” till the disposal of the suit.
In his plea, Bhagnani has stated that the essence of the tweets was that Bhagnani’s production house had not made payments in respect of remake rights of his film.
After hearing the matter at length, the court observed that the tweets are not in the nature of criticism given by a film critic, which is contrary to the defence of KRK and are in the nature of serious defamatory and slanderous remarks made against Vashu Bhagnani, his family members, his business, profession and his projects.
The court’s actions came soon after KRK made light of the suit and put out another series of slanderous tweets against the Bhagnanis. The producer was represented in court by advocates Ameet Naik ,Virendra Tulzapurkar, Rashmin Khandekar, and Madhu Gadodia.
