Indian actor files suit against Shah Rukh Khan
NEW DELHI (AP) — Veteran Indian actor and director Manoj Kumar has filed a lawsuit against Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan for releasing a popular 2007 film in Japan without deleting scenes that make fun of him.
Kumar is seeking 1 billion rupees ($18.5 million) in damages from Khan and Eros International, the producers of the film, "Om Shanti Om."
Kumar had approached a court when the movie was first released in 2007, objecting to scenes spoofing his mannerisms. In 2008, a Mumbai court ordered that the scenes be deleted from any future screenings of the film, and Khan apologized to Kumar.
Kumar said the film was recently released in Japan without deleting the scenes.
"Om Shanti Om" is a romantic comedy featuring Khan and Deepika Padukone in lead roles.
