Manoj Kumar to sue Shah Rukh Khan for ‘humiliating’ him in Om Shanti Om
Director Farah Khan’s Om Shanti Om is being lapped up by the audience but there is someone who’s hasn’t quite appreciated the humour in the movie.
The actor who gave a new definition to patriotism on celluloid says that the scene in Om Shanti Om where his young double is shown being beaten up by the police outside a theatre is done in bad taste.
In yet another scene, Shah Rukh is shown giving a mock thank-you speech in a drunken state and later saying he’s Manoj Kumar.
The veteran, also known as Bharat Kumar, has lashed out at director Farah Khan saying, “This is not film making”.
Om Shanti Om, Farah Khan’s second directorial venture after Main Hoon Na, hit screens across India on November 9 with a big Diwali bang. The film stars newcomer Deepika Padukone opposite Shah Rukh Khan.
