Bollywood actor Salman Khan has approached the Bombay High Court in connection with a financial dispute between the actor and producer Vijay Galani. Khan moved high court asking it to appoint some person to act as an arbitrator to look into the disputes and differences between him and Galani.
The complaint states that Salman is to receive Rs 15 crore from Galani for the film Veer, which Galani has not paid yet.
Salman is a member of Cine and TV Artist Association and Galani as a producer is a member of Association of Motion Pictures and TV Programme Producers Association.
There is an agreement between the two associations that in case of any disputes between the members of the said associations, the same shall be referred to the sole arbitrator of the joint committee of the said two associations.
All the film related associations had asked Galani to pay up and had even gone to the extent of issuing circular to its members asking them to not work with Galani. On his part, Galani had reportedly alleged that his reputation was hurt due to all this and had threatened to file for damages worth Rs 250 crore.
