The Bollywood megastar always lands himself in legal trouble someway or another, and this time it has to do with his gift to fans on his 50th.
When he announced news of his website launch on Twitter, fans went into a frenzy.

They're suing the actor for trademark infringement, claiming that the name of his new online shopping platform is similar to the 65-year-old famous Khan Market in Delhi.
"Khan Market is a global brand, people from world over know Khan Market in Delhi. Salman Khan should have taken us into confidence before using the portal of Khan market," Member of Khan Market shopkeeper association Sanjeev Mehra said.

Although the website has yet to begin operations, registrations have opened for fans.
Legal experts suggest that there is no trademark infringement involved in the case, but Confederation of All India Traders have backed Khan Market Traders stating that though the online portal has no connection with the market, Salman "cannot steal the goodwill Khan Market has earned in the past 65 years".
Just when the actor bid farewell to one lawsuit, another legal trouble strikes.
