Bollywood superstar Salman Khan once again came in a tryst with the law on Friday. The actor was summoned by the Chandigarh Police along with his sister Alvira Khan and six others following a complaint of cheating lodged by a local businessman, Arun Gupta.
Gupta had complained that he had opened an exclusive store under Salman's Jewellery brand and was assured all kinds of 'backup and means to promote the venture. However, neither of the two were fulfilled and even the goods were allegedly not delivered.
Now, in response to the claims made by the man in question, the jewellery band, who handle the manufacturing and sale of products under Salman's brand, assures that the current case did not involve the Bollywood star, nor his sister Alvira or members of the Being Human foundation, reported ETimes.
In response to the claims made by Gupta, "They have nothing to do with it," the team said in a statement offering clarification on the case. "Since the matter is sub judice, we will not be able to comment more," added the report.
Gupta, in his complaint, had said that he was assured that Salman Khan will promote the brand, but claimed that nothing happened despite repeatedly contacting the company officials.
He further claimed that the office which was used for collecting stock was also lying shut since February 2020. Gupta reportedly mentioned that he was assured that Salman Khan will come himself for the inauguration of the showroom, but stated that his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma came instead.
Gupta has demanded registration of an FIR in this case.
