Salman Khan fails to identify Shakeel's henchman in court

MUMBAI: Bollywood actor Salman Khan, who appeared as a prosecution witness in a case against gangster Chhota Shakeel's henchman Anjum Fazlani, failed to identify the accused today.

Salman told special MCOCA judge M P Kukday that he might have met Fazlani only once or twice several years ago and thus does not remember him.

According to the prosecution, Fazlani had threatened Salman to reduce his fee for producer Nazim Rizvi's movie "Chori Chori Chupke Chupke" (2001) or face dire consequences.

The actor, clad in a black shirt and off-white trousers, told the court he was approached by Rizvi and assistant producer Abdul Rahim Allahbaksh with an offer to play the lead role in the movie.

"I agreed to the offer but on the condition that the movie should be directed by a well-established director. Rahim wanted to direct the movie himself, but then agreed and the movie was directed by Abbas-Mastan," Salman told the court.

"Salman stuck to what he had said to the police in his statement. His evidence is essential for the prosecution for corroboration with Rizvi's confession," special public prosecutor Rohini Salian said.

The prosecution's case is that the film was financed by diamond merchant Bharat Shah at the behest of Chhota Shakeel. Shah, Rizvi and Rahim were charged and faced trial under the stringent provisions of MCOCA and other sections of IPC.
