Salman Khan filed a defamation suit against his Panvel neighbor, Ketan Kakkad after he posted videos on social media alleging Salman of being involved in illegal activities.
Salman Khan approached the High Court on Friday after his Panvel farmhouse neighbor, Ketan Kakkad accused the superstar of being engaged in several nefarious activities. The superstar has now filed a case accusing Ketan of not only for making defamatory but also communally provocative comments. This comes after NRI resident Ketan Kakkad allegedly posted videos accusing Salman Khan of several things including drug and human trafficking.
As per these videos shared by Ketan, he alleged that Salman Khan wants to shut down a Ganesha temple and compared him to Mughal Emperors, Babar and Aurangazeb. The actor’s lawyer Mr. Kadam was quoted in these reports saying, “In the video, the defendant (Kakkad) compares Salman Khan to Babar and Aurangazeb. He (Kakkad) says it had taken 500 years for the Ayodhya Mandir (temple) to come up and here Salman Khan is trying to shut down a Ganesha temple.”
In his videos, Ketan also went on to accuse Salman of being involved in drug, human, and organ trafficking as he went on to further assert that he is associated with gangster Dawood and his gang.
According to reports, Salman Khan had approached his neighbor to sort the matter amicably. However, when it didn’t work, the star sought the help of the civil court where he requested them to pass an order to take down the videos and also help stop Kakkad from making any more comments. But, the single bench of Justice C V Bhadang did not grant the star any relief in terms of the defamation suit, after which, the superstar decided to approach the High Court.
Reportedly, Salman Khan’s lawyer Mr. Kadam argued that the videos uploaded by Ketan Kakkad were not only defamatory but were also communally provocative. “These videos are watched by lakhs of viewers who then post their comments against Salman Khan. This is clearly provoking the viewers against Salman. The videos have communalized everything and made it Hindus vs Muslims,” the lawyer was further quoted.
On the other hand, lawyers of the NRI resident argued that the defamation suit was an attempt to pressurize Kakkad to give up his land.
