Salman Khan Summoned By Chandigarh Police For An Alleged ‘Being Human Fraud’ Case
Salman Khan, who is currently busy shooting for his next, has once again landed in legal trouble. Several reports suggest that the Chandigarh Police has summoned Khan, his sister Alvira Khan and six others people including Being Human Foundation’s CEO and officials of Style Quotient (licensee of Being Human Jewellery), following a complaint of cheating filed by a local businessman.
Arun Gupta, the businessman who filed the complaint said that he invested Rs 2crores to 3 crores to open an exclusive store under the brand Being Human Jewellery. When the deal was proposed in 2018, Gupta informed that he was assured that the company would provide all kinds of backup and also promote the brand. The complaint states that neither the promotion commitments were fulfilled nor goods were delivered to him for his store.
He also revealed that while the team members of Being Human promised that Salman Khan will promote the brand and inaugurate the showroom, none of these promises were fulfilled either. Khan’s brother-in-law Aayush Sharma was present at the inauguration instead. He also alleged that the office which was to be used for collecting stock has also been lying shut since February 2020.
The businessman told ANI News, “After opening the showroom, we have not received any spot. They called us for a meet-and-greet with Salman Khan. I met him and he promised me. Now 1.5 years have passed and I have not received anything. Salman did not reply to my letters.”
“They have been given till July 13 to reply. If there’s anything criminal, action will be taken,” Chandigarh SP Ketan Bansal told ANI News.
On the work front, Salman Khan has films such as Antim – The Final Truth, Kick 2, Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali and Tiger 3 in his kitty. Khan’s Chulbul Pandey got its own animated series. The series is currently streaming on Disney+ Hotstar VIP. The show which is titled Dabangg – The Animated Series, is the latest addition to the kids’ content section on the OTT platform.
