Since the announcement of his new movie, Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan, all eyes have been on Salman Khan. Fans have been excitedly anticipating the film since its teaser was recently unveiled. Aside from this, the actor caught everyone's attention since he has been getting death threats. However, today appears to be a bright day for him as the Bombay High Court annulled all criminal proceedings against the actor in response to a journalist's complaint of coercion, stating that the legal process does not have to be the source of all unnecessary harassment simply because the accused is a well-known individual.
According to reports, Judicial Bharati Dangre allowed applications filed by Salman Khan and his bodyguard Nawaz Shaikh on March 30 and quashed the proceedings and orders issued to them by a lower court. For the unversed, a complaint of intimidation was filed by a journalist in 2019. In the detailed order that became available on Tuesday, the HC noted that the magistrate's court had failed to follow the procedural mandate before issuing the summons.
The detailed order stated, "the judicial process need not be meant for needless harassment merely because the accused is a well-known celebrity and without adhering to the procedure of law, he shall not be subjected to unnecessary oppression at the hands of a complainant, who set in the machinery into motion to satisfy his vendetta and assumed that he was insulted by the cine star."
Farhad Samji is helming Salman's film 'Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan'. The film which is touted to be a family action-drama, will also star Venkatesh Daggubati, Pooja Hegde, Jagapathi Babu, Bhumika Chawla, Vijender Singh, Abhimanyu Singh, Raghav Juyal, Siddharth Nigam, Jassie Gill, Shehnaaz Gill, Palak Tiwari and Vinali Bhatnagar. It is all set to release in theatres on the 21st April.
