SRK, Gauri to appear in court
In relation to the defamation case filed by veteran actor Manoj Kumar, Shahrukh Khan and Gauri was asked to appear in the court. Along with them, Farah Khan was also being asked to remain present before it on February 22 for Om Shanti Om where Manoj Kumar's replica played by Shahrukh Khan was shown beaten up by police guard when he tried to enter the movie premiere.
The aged actor was deeply humiliated for that derogatory scene of beating and reacted strongly about it. Though Farah and Shahrukh apologizes the actor for their wrong, Manoj Kumar did not rest in peace. The makers tried to convince him in many ways but failed to do so and ultimately Manoj Kumar dragged the trio to the court.
Manoj Kumar’s allegation against them is that they had lowered their image and reputation in front of all. To compensate the lost image, he demanded rupees and insisted deletion of that particular objectionable scenes from Cds and DVDs.
