Mumbai, September 22
Denying the claims made by a piece of the media in latest stories that Bollywood celebrity Salman Khan has a majority stake at Kwan Talent Management Agency, his lawyer has issued a press release.
The assertion has been issued by Anand Desai, Managing Partner of DSK Legal on behalf of the Bollywood celebrity, terming it as a false report.
The assertion reads: “Certain sections of the media are falsely reporting that our client Mr. Salman Khan, a leading Indian actor, has a majority stake in the talent management agency KWAN Talent Management Agency Private Limited. It is clarified that Mr. Salman Khan has no stake, directly or indirectly, in Kwan or any of its group entities. It is requested that media refrains from publishing false reports about our client.”
On Tuesday afternoon, a tv information channel tweeted claiming Salman Khan’s agency “reportedly” owns a majority stake in Kwan. Reacting to the tweet, “Dabangg 3” producer Nikhil Dwivedi had tweeted from his verified account denying the information.
Nikhil wrote: “This NEWS is FALSE, MALICIOUS & MISCHIEVOUS. No stake of any kind is owned by #SalmanKhan or by any of his associates in #Kwan. Such knowledge in today’s times is easily available in the public domain and its deplorable tht a major News Channel can’t verify as much. #Sad #Shameful.” IANS
