There’s a lot that has been going on between Salman Khan and actor, writer, and producer Kamaal R Khan. Salman Khan, we hear, is suing him for making defamatory claims about himself. Salman Khan’s legal team has claimed that KRK has been making defamatory allegations against the star, stating that ‘Mr. Salman Khan is corrupt that he and his brand Being Human are involved in fraud, manipulation, and money laundering transactions and also that he and Salman Khan Films are dacoits.’ They have said that KRK has been making these allegations in an attempt to draw attention to himself.
KRK’s version of the story is completely different. He claims that the actor is miffed about his negative review of the film Radhe. KRK has greatly criticized the movie Radhe and even made a remark that watching the film can be brain-damaging and fatal, just like how going in a crowd without a mask during corona times is dangerous.
KRK’s review of Radhe
From start to finish, KRK has nothing good to say about the movie ‘Radhe’. The only good part of the movie he claims is Randeep Hooda and his portrayal of the film’s villain. KRK has stated many valid points about how the movie’s standard is pretty low and that people like Disha Patani have no clue as to what they are doing in the movie. KRK, throughout the review, refers to Salman Khan as an old man and Disha as his granddaughter. He had a few good things to say about Disha. That she does look very good looking and also dances well. KRK has criticized every aspect of the movie, including the action sequences and the special effects used to depict Salman Khan’s physique.
He has said that in the action sequences, the movements of Salman’s body double are faster and more powerful and do not match the movements of Salman Khan. He had also said that in a scene where Salman goes shirtless, the film’s director had used special effects to show Salman Khan’s body the way it was about a decade ago when he became famous for going shirtless in the song ‘Oh Oh Jaane Jaana’
The real story
As of now, it is pretty unclear as to who is telling the truth. It is pretty obvious that KRK’s review of ‘Radhe’ is brutally honest and critical, and a star of Salman Khan’s stature would have an ego conflict on hearing remarks like this being made about him. Salman Khan’s legal team continues to maintain that he has sued KRK for very different reasons and that what KRK claims is not the truth.
On Twitter, KRK has posted what looks like a screenshot of the complaint and said, “It’s the starting portion of petition & you can see that No.1 is #Radhe’s trailer and No.2 is Radha‘s review. It means the case is about #Radhe’s reviews videos. It means it’s all about Radhe! All other things are to support the case to make it strong. Means #DSK are good liars.”
We all agree that ‘Radhe’ is not one of Salman Khan’s best movies. The actor has a lot more potential, and it has not been put to good use in this mindless entertainer. However, KRK’s only claim to fame is that he participated in BigBoss in 2009. He has a history of making derogatory remarks about popular movie stars, probably in an attempt to attract attention to himself and get some publicity. It has to be taken into account that during Indian General Elections in 2014, he tweeted that he will leave India if Narendra Modi becomes our prime minister. He went as far as posting a fabricated screenshot of the controversial tweet after replacing his name with that of Shah Rukh Khan. This became a massive controversy as some media outlets didn’t investigate the issue properly and credited the tweet to Shahrukh Khan.
Also, on the day of Kochadaiiyan’s release, he tweeted that he will review Heropanti but not watch the crap film Kochadaiiyan. This resulted in a severe backlash from South Indian star Rajini Kanth’s fans. Going by these instances, we cannot be sure of KRK’s motive behind the bad review of ‘Radhe. We will have to wait a little more to know what’s true and what’s not.
