Mumbai: Bollywood actor Govinda has refuted Kamal Rashid Khan’s claims that he extended support to the self-proclaimed critic in his legal tussle with Salman Khan. The ‘Coolie No.1’ star has clarified that KRK’s tweet could be for someone else with the same name.
Govinda cleared the air about the rumours of him supporting KRK after Salman filed a defamation case against him for ‘publishing and endorsing defamatory allegations’.
KRK had shared a post on Twitter to thank Govinda for the ‘love and support’. “Govinda Bhai thank you for your love and support. I won’t disappoint you,” KRK’s tweet read.
Govinda, while talking to a leading news agency, said that he is not in touch with Kamal Rashid Khan for several years. He added that the actor-turned-critic even wrote ‘unfit statements’ about him and his films in the past.
“I read some media reports about me backing KRK. I am not in touch with KRK for years altogether — no meetings, no phone calls, and no messages. It could be some other person by the same name as I am not being tagged in the tweet. In fact, the self-proclaimed critic had spoken and written unfit statements about me and my movies in the past,” the ‘Dulhe Raja’ actor told IANS.
Last week, Salman’s legal team issued a statement to announce that the ‘Bharat’ actor slapped KRK with a defamation suit as he was ‘spreading malicious falsehoods’ and defaming him since several months. DSK Legal, who represents Khan, said that KRK’s review of ‘Radhe’ had nothing to do with the defamation case.
