After Salman Khan, actor Manoj Bajpayee has also filed a criminal defamation case against KRK aka Kamaal Rashid Khan. The lawsuit comes after the self-proclaimed critic referred to Bajpayee as “Charsi, Ganjedi Manoj?” in a tweet.
The actor’s lawyer Paresh S Joshi told PTI that Bajpayee has filed the criminal complaint in the court of judicial magistrate first class (JMFC) against Khan (46) under IPC section 500 (punishment for defamation). The Family Man actor himself appeared before the court to record his statement, added his lawyer.
The tweet in question was posted by Khan on July 26 where he said, “I am not a Lukkha and Faaltu in life, So I don’t watch web series. Better you ask Sunil Pal. But why do you like to watch a Charsi, Ganjedi Manoj? You can’t be selective. If you hate Charsi Ganjedi in Bollywood, So you should hate everyone.”
Reacting to the news, KRK was quick enough to reprimand Manoj Bajpayee even more. He tweeted, “I haven’t received any notice till now but media says that Manoj Bajpayee has filed a defamation case against me in Indore? When Manoj is living in Mumbai then why he went to Indore to file a case? He doesn’t trust @MumbaiPolice and judiciary? You all know who is from Indore?.”
“And who asked Manoj to file a case from Indore to harass me instead of Mumbai. Dadu ji you can’t save your career by harassing me. You are making entire Bollywood to gang up against me to stop me from reviewing your films but it won’t work. I will still review your all films,” said KRK, hinting at Salman Khan.
On the work front, Bajpayee will be seen in The Family Man season 3, Kurup and Despatch next. His latest project, Dial 100, recently premiered on ZEE5. The actor was also recently honoured with the Best Performance (Male) in Web Series at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne Awards for The Family Man 2.
