Eid-eve jolt: US NRI seeks Rs 295 cr as libel case ‘costs’ from Salman Khan

0

In a mega jolt on the eve of Ramzan Eid, Bollywood megastar Salman Khan has been slapped with a legal notice — demanding a staggering Rs 295 crore as ‘costs in cause — by his neighbour Ketan R. Kakkad, a retired NRI from the USA.

According to sources, the notice has been sent by Kakkad through the actor’s team, DSK Legal – among the top-notch law firms in the country, with a week’s time to comply.

“It is over a week now but there has been no response from them. We shall pursue the matter till its logical end as per the honourable court verdict,” a grim Kakkad confirmed, when queried by IANS.

The development came soon after the Bombay City Civil Court Judge A. H. Laddhad’s order in a notice of motion for interim reliefs, arising in a defamation suit filed by Khan against Kakkad.

In the March 23 order, Judge Laddhad had virtually rejected all contentions in Khan’s plea for an interim ‘gag order’ against Kakkad, and awarded the latter ‘costs in cause’ while disposing off the matter, spelling a setback for the actor.

Besides Kakkad, his next door neighbour at the Panvel (Raigad) farmhouse, Khan had dragged social media giants like Google, YouTube, FaceBook, Twitter, Sandeep Phogat, Paras Bhat and Ujjwal Narain, as parties, and it became one of the most avidly followed cases this year.

Among other things, the plaintiff (Khan) sought directions for a comprehensive order restraining the defendants (Kakkad, et al) from defaming the actor and his Panvel farmhouse on all public domains and social media platforms.

After several days of heated arguments on both sides — with strong counters to DSK Legal battery by Kakkad’s formidable team comprising Y.P. Singh, Abha Singh and Aditya Pratap — Judge Laddhad ruled in favour of the defendants, stunning the plaintiffs.

In the demand for Rs 295 crore ‘costs in cause’, Kakkad has recounted how he and his wife Anita Kakkad, a senior citizen NRI couple from the US, were systematically harassed, tortured, prevented from entering their plot of land adjoining Khan’s sprawling Arpita Farms in Raigad for the past many years.

“On the other side, Salman Khan is a very wealthy, world-famous and politically extremely powerful personality, who – through his team – spared no efforts to bring us to the knees. All with the final aim to somehow illegally grab our plots of land in Raigad and drive us out of India forever,” Kakkad pointed out.

However, Kakkad said it was only due to the ‘blessings’ of the tiny eco-friendly Lord Ganesha Temple on his plot that they survived and “achieved an unparalleled legal victory” in March, proving more than a match for the “Dabangg” superstar.

Justifying the demand towards his ‘costs in cause’, Kakkad claimed that as per US standards in similar litigation, “Rs 295 crore is peanuts”, and nothing for a person of the stature of the ‘ill-advised Khan’.

The amount would barely cover the lawyers’ fees, compensation to scores of online experts and foot-soldiers, advisors in various fields and also his wife, all of whom toiled 24×7 to conduct research, collect background material, documents, evidence, etc, compile and tabulate it properly for the court’s benefit, he said.

“However, if the opposite side dilly-dallies and does not clear our ‘costs in cause’ within a reasonable time, we have kept all our options open, including moving the US courts for redressal as Khan side has defamed us globally through such false and mischievous litigation, plus serve as an example to others,” warned Kakkad.

Retired NRI,’Dabangg’ neighbour Salman Khan lock horns

An unseemly row has erupted between a retired NRI from the US, Ketan Kakkad and his neighbour Bollywood megastar Salman Khan over a plot of land in the picturesque environs of Raigad.

Taking strong umbrage at Kakkad’s recent social media outbursts, the actor has hit back with a civil defamation suit against his next-door neighbour, besides Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and other social platform content creators.

The matter pertains to the mid-1990s when the young NRI Kakkad planned to buy a tiny plot of land in Raigad to build his retirement nest, and the seller company introduced him to the legendary Bollywood writer, Salim Khan.

The celeb Khans assured Kakkad that the locality was good and they would love to have him as their neighbour instead of some other snoopy types as the hilly plot – eyed by the NRI – overlooks the family’s 100-acre Arpita Farms.

Convinced, the pleased Kakkad bought the 2.50 acre plot in 1996 and later built a tiny eco-friendly Lord Ganesh Temple on it, and years later, even an environment-friendly 120-square feet thatched hut to occasionally go and get a breather there.

The two neighbours got along jovially for over two decades and whenever the Kakkads visited their tiny property, they were accorded a warm welcome by the Khan clan, with refreshments and beverages, at the Arpita Farms – where Salman Khan was bitten by a non-venomous snake on December 26, 2021, on the eve of his 56th birthday, giving palpitations to the whole nation.

In 2014, Kakkad retired and returned to India, eager to build a small cottage along with wife Anita, and probably an ‘ashram’ in the future, and meditate before their tiny temple.

Kakkad claimed that in December 2019, the Khan family — which is renowned for worshipping the elephant-headed God during Ganeshotsav every year — suddenly barred his entry to his property.

“Despite repeated pleas, we are not allowed to go there… The local officials of the Forest and Revenue departments are also not helping us out,” rued Kakkad.

Left with no options, Kakkad resorted to venting his ire via social media and even gave some interviews on YouTube, raising the hackles of the “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” superstar.

Khan hit back with a stern Short Cause Suit on January 8, against Kakkad and the others, accusing them of “malafide intentions” to damage his goodwill and reputation by hurling “absolutely baseless, false and unwarranted allegations”, through the law firm, DSK Legal, of lawyer Anand Desai and his team.

The matter came up before Additional Sessions Judge Anil Laddhad who adjourned it to January 21 on a plea for time by Kakkad’s lawyers Abha Singh and Aditya Pratap.

Khan also charged the social media giants of continuously “loading/uploading, posting and publishing various malicious and defamatory content” against him and his family causing “grave and irreparable harm, loss and injury” with the “provocative, unsubstantiated” content without a shred of truth arising out of personal vendetta and ill-will.

The actor contended that Kakkad’s plot was reportedly cancelled by the Maharashtra government as “illegal”, for which he blamed the Khan family, alleged that the superstar harboured underworld links with the ‘D-Company’ (the absconder mafia don Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar), and that illegal/criminal activities were going on at Arpita Farms.

Taking objection to certain utterances by Kakkad, the megastar pointed out that the insinuation that he had illegally usurped/grabbed the Lord Ganesh Temple “inter-alia intends to cause communal violence in society”.

In the suit, Khan sought a permanent order to bar Kakkad and the other defendants from directly/indirectly loading/uploading, posting/reposting, tweeting/retweeting, giving media interviews, corresponding, communicating, hosting, issuing, printing, publishing, disseminating, circulating further, in any manner vide any medium, such defamatory, malicious or scandalous content.

Khan urged the court to direct the social media players “to forthwith withdraw and/or recall, take down, block/restrict/disable, all content defamatory to him in the present case, from all other mediums where they are hosted or exist.

He demanded that Kakkad, and three others — Sandeep Phogat, Paras Bhat and Ujjwal Narain — must tender an unconditional apology via their media and cough out the legal suit costs.

Kakkad denied the superstar’s contentions and said “there is a misunderstanding” which will be sorted out, and expressed his keenness to go to his land and build his small dream house there.

“Presently, Anita and I are cooped up in this one room-kitchen flat in Malad, both suffer from comorbidities so cannot step out much and long for our open-to-sky plot… We have absolutely no animosity against the Khans or anybody and shall await the legal outcome,” said Kakkad.

The court has also directed the country’s leading telecom operators — Airtel, Jio and Vodafone — to disclose subscriber details of the offenders, with Zee to initiate further legal action against them.

The Delhi High Court order mentions: “The Plaintiff has filed the instant suit for permanent injunction, rendition of accounts and damages for the infringement of Plaintiff’s exclusive license and exploitation rights in the cinematograph film ‘Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai’ (in short ‘the film’). As stated in the plaint, the Plaintiff is the exclusive licensee and holder of various exploitation rights including Theatrical Rights, Satellite Rights, On Demand Rights, etc. in and to the film, including, inter alia, the exclusive right to distribute/exhibit/release the film and/or make the film available to the public through theatrical, internet, digital and online streaming platforms/OTT platforms, Transactional Video On Demand (TVOD) etc.”

The Economics of Salman Khan’s Radhe

Radhe is directed by Prabhudeva and Salman Khan, Disha Patani played the lead roles. The film is said to have decent business across the international circuits where it had a theatrical release.

Will Bollywood biggies follow Radhe?

0

Salman Khan’s recent offering Radhe took up the digital path and released on ZeePlex. The film released on a pay-per-view basis and is streamed for Rs 249 per view. The production house announced that the film received 4.2 million views on day one and the film had a fabulous weekend all over. The response for the film is mixed and several Bollywood filmmakers have been waiting to witness the performance of Radhe on ZeePlex. Zee Studios will calculate the final profit and loss statement after which they will choose the path and release some more projects in the coming months.

Some of the filmmakers are not convinced with the pay per view basis release considering the current situations while some of them are keen to head for a digital release with their movies. Some of them are expecting a whopping amount to close the digital deal instead of pay-per-view basis.

Considering the second wave of coronavirus, it is impossible for the Bollywood biggies to release this year in theatres. But some of them will head for digital release considering the offers. Akshay Kumar’s upcoming movie Bellbottom is the next biggie from Hindi to have a digital release and the film will soon stream on Disney Plus Hotstar.
