Yesteryear's actor Manoj Kumar created a furor around the release of the Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone starrer Om Shanti Om, based on his apparent defamation in the film. Though later the actor withdrew post SRK and director Farah Khan apologized to him. But now he has renewed his battle against the film.
The reason behind his visible anger is related to a scene in the film in which Shah Rukh had mimicked Kumar in a manner which the veteran actor found objectionable. However, the magistrate, while adjourning the matter till Friday, has directed that a CD of the movie containing the objectionable scene be produced before the court.
Earlier, post the apology, a Mumbai court had ordered that the said scene be deleted from the movie before it was released and telecast on television channels. Now with the recent release in Japan, the said scene was not deleted. Adding that he had been made to believe that the scene was deleted from the movie, but now it was being shown all over the place in an attempt to gain popularity and business for the film, and making money out of it, which he has termed as a "fraud" and "conspiracy".
