Veteran actor Manoj Kumar will file a law suit on Monday (April 1) against Shah Rukh Khan and Eros International, producers of 2007 hit 'Om Shanti Om', and seek damages to the tune of Rs 100 crore for releasing the film in Japan without removing certain scenes apparently lampooning him.
"The film was released in Japan without deleting those scenes. I had forgiven them twice but not this time. They have disrespected me. They also face contempt of court as in 2008 the court had asked them to forever and from all prints and broadcast material, delete those scenes," Manoj Kumar told PTI.
"I would file civil and criminal proceedings against the producers (Shah Rukh Khan and Eros International) for seeking damages to the tune of Rs 100 crore for showing Om Shanti Om in Japan without removing objectionable scenes as ordered by Mumbai civil court in 2008", he said.
Om Shanti Om, a 2007 musical romcom had Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone in the lead.
It was produced by Shah Rukh Khan and Eros International and directed by Farah Khan.
The veteran actor was upset with the spoof on him and had got a court order asking the objectionable scenes to be deleted before the satellite screening.
Eros International did not respond to calls.
