Bollywood Star Salman Khan Sues Actor-Critic Kamaal Khan for Badmouthing Movie ‘Radhe’

Actor-turned-self-proclaimed movie critic Kamaal Khan has panned the recently released flick “Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai” starring superstar Salman Khan and actress Disha Patani. He said in his review that “corona damages lungs, this film damages brain[s]. To watch this film in corona times is as risky as going to crowded place without masks”.

Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has filed a defamation suit against actor-turned-movie critic Kamaal Rashid Khan for his review of “Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai”.

Kamaal, in his movie review, takes a dig at Salman Khan by referring to him as “Daadu” (grandfather) and the lead actress Disha Patani, who plays his love interest in the movie, as his granddaughter.

As per the notice, Salman Khan’s legal team will be mentioning the matter for an urgent hearing on Thursday before an additional sessions judge of the city civil court in Mumbai.

Reacting to the defamation notice while addressing Salman Khan, Kamaal said he is only doing his job and that he (Salman) should make better films instead of stopping him from reviewing them.

Kamaal tagged Salman’s father Salim Khan and clarified that he is not here to destroy Salman Khan’s films or his career or anyone for that matter.

​Taking into consideration Salman’s disappointment of his reviews, Kamaal decided to delete the review video and shared his decision to never critique his movies anymore.

​This is not the first time that Kamaal has landed in hot water for trashing a movie by giving derogatory reviews.

In April 2021, Kamaal was slapped with a defamation suit by actor-producer Vashu Bhagnani for trashing his movie “Coolie No 1” starring Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan.

Kamaal had accused Vashu of buying out critics who rated “Coolie No 1” a blockbuster hit.

Vashu in his lawsuit accused Kamaal of making “slanderous” and “distasteful” statements and “patently false allegations” on social media.

The Bombay High Court restrained Kamaal from sending “defamatory” tweets against producer Vashu Bhagnani and his family members pending a verdict in the defamation suit.
