‘Real-life Sultan’ files case against Salman Khan

Published: July 12, 2016


An Indian man, who claims to be a real-life lead character in Salman Khan’s latest blockbuster Sultan, has filed a case of cheating against the Bollywood super hero, his co-star Anushka Sharma and director Ali Zafar Abbas in a local court.

The plaintiff, Mohammad Sabir Ansari alias Sabir Baba, who is a resident of Muzaffarpur, has claimed that Salman had promised to give him Rs200 million as royalty for making a film based on his life.

“Sabir narrated his story to Salman in Mumbai in 2010 and the actor promised the remuneration if a film was made based on it,” Ansari’s counsel Sudhir Kumar Ojha said.

Judicial magistrate of Muzaffarpur, Ram Chandra Prasad, transferred the case to the court of judicial magistrate first class, SK Tripathi, and July 26 has been fixed as the next date of hearing.

The case has been filed under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) including 420 (cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property), 406 (punishment for criminal breach of trust), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace) and 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation).

Released on July 6, the first day of Eid, Sultan earned over Rs35 million and Rs41 million on its first and second day respectively.

    Movie is a complete fiction. No Indian with name of Sultan or Ansari has won gold medal or any medal of wrestling in Olympics or world championship. Recommend

    As news says “he claims he was promised Rs 200million but the earned Rs 41 and 35 million in two days. Means he is expecting too much earnings. He is just fame Hungary, there is no such story where one earns gold medal in wrestling after 4 weeks of learning at state level, forget about getting Olympic medal.Recommend

    @ Fawad. Dont spread false spoilers if you haven’t watched the movie yet. As per the film, Sultan started training in 2008, he won the State championship in 2009, commonwealth Games 2010 and Olympic and World Championship in 2012. I believe 4 years is a realistic preparation time for an Olympic medal. I am not sure which 2 weeks movie have you seen.Recommend
