Salman Khan likely to be interrogated by Crime Branch
Salman Khan’s legal hassles only seem to increase by the day and now apart from several pending court cases, Salman may have to give Crime Branch detectives some serious answers. Salman is likely to be questioned in the Bharat Shah Case. According to the ongoing case, Bharat Shah had allegedly financed gangster Chhota Shakeel’s film Chori Chori Chupke Chupke with hawala money. The film starred Salman Khan, Rani Mukherjee and Preity Zinta. Shakeel’s aide Anjum Adam Phajalani was recently deported from Dubai and according to sources he was the one who had met Salman and allegedly threatened him to reduce his fee for the film then.
However Anjum, Shakeel’s aide has made claims that although he had met Salman at the time he did not threaten him in any way to reduce his fee. According to sources Salman’s normal fee at the time was around Rs. 4 crores, but he did Chori Chori Chupke Chupke for around Rs.1.5 crores. An official in the Crime Branch confirms that they have asked Salman to come in for questioning saying “We have already summoned the actor for questioning on Wednesday evening, if he is in town he will have to come here.” However Salman is only being questioned as a routine to confirm Anjum’s role in the case. Producer of the film Nasim Rizvi too was involved in the case and according to sources was closely involved with Anjum.
Anjum has been booked under the MCOCA Act and Salman will supposedly be made to identify a picture of Anjum and confirm if he has ever met him. However acknowledging the fact that he did meet Anjum may open a Pandora’s Box for the actor and may also be a risk for Salman. Nonetheless sources claim Salman would come in for questioning.
Salman Khan recently attended the GIFA event in Kuala Lumpur ; he walked the ramp, played football for charity and even performed during the awards night on stage. Salman also launched the music of Arjun Rampal’s home production ‘I See You’ at GIFA.
