This year, Salman Khan is busy not only with shooting schedules but also dealing with court cases.

'Veer' movie producer Vijay Galani has filed a defaming case against him.

Vijay Galani said, “I agreed to pay Salman a signing amount of 10 crores for the movie 'veer'. Veer was the only movie to pay him this huge amount. His entire fee for 'Yuvraaj' and 'Wanted' was only around 7-8 crores. Even Salman had admitted this huge payment to be new to him.” He also added that they had agreed to pay 15 crores to Salman if the movie had fetched more profit than expected.

“Later when the movie was a flop, Salman had sent me a letter asking for a copy of the 'overflow' agreement. Salman then asked me to ignore the letter saying that his new business manager had sent the letter. But again in April, he had sent me another letter stating that he was finding the 15 crore 'overflow' agreement unacceptable. We were working for two years and he had never mentioned about this problem. What made him suddenly have a problem with the agreement?” Galani questioned.

“I approached CINTAA with the 'overflow' agreement and proof to show that 'Veer' was a flop. So they ruled in my favour. Salman then approached the Federation Of Western India Cine Association. In spite of me responding with the 'overflow' agreement, they had issued a baseless non-cooperation letter against me. Then I approached the court, and the court has now ruled in my favour and issued an absolute stay on the non-cooperation letter.” The producer claims that he had lost valuable years in cine industry because of Salman's case against him.
