Megastar Salman Khan, today, issued a press statement warning fake news peddlers that legal action will be taken against those claiming that Salman Khan Films is casting people for any movie.
In a press statement today, Salman Khan and his production firm said, “This is to clarify that neither Mr. Salman Khan nor Salman Khan Films are casting for any film currently. We have not hired any casting agents for any of our future films. Please do not trust any emails or messages received by you for this purpose. Legal action will be taken if any party is found falsely using Mr Khan's or SKF's name in any unauthorised manner."
This news development sweeps in days after multiple social media handles claimed that the 57-year-old megastar and his production firm are casting actors for the sequel of his notable movie, Kick, and for filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Inshallah.
Rubbishing statements made by unverified news portals; Salman Khan has given a strong message to fake news peddlers.
On July 4, a report by India Today claimed, Salman Khan is keen on reviving Inshallah with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Not only this, but multiple reports recently also claimed that Salman Khan and filmmaker Sajid Nadiadwala will join forces for Kick 2, whose screenplay is currently being penned.
Well, only time will tell what the progress of these upcoming movies is.
Unfortunately, Salman Khan and his professional front have often been targeted by fake news peddlers.
In April this year, the Mumbai Police control room received a call threatening to kill Bollywood actor Salman Khan. Soon, the cops nabbed the caller – a 16-year-old child, who desired to get clicked with Khan one day and hence indulged in unlawful activities.
Notably, Salman Khan has been provided with Y+ category security by the Mumbai police as the actor is perceived to be under threat.
