Bollywood actor Salman Khan recently appeared before a special court in Mumbai as a prosecution witnesses in a 10-year-old case of one of his old movie, Chori Chori Chupke Chupke. The movie ‘Chori Chori Chupke Chupke’ (2001) hit headlines after the release when the Mumbai Police alleged that the movie was made with underworld’s money. Renowned film financier Bharat Shah was arrested in the case in 2001. Shah was alleged to have links with top gangster Chhota Shakeel and had used underworld money to finance the film. However, Salman Khan’s lawyer Shrikant Shivade said that it was a normal testimony for identification of one of the accused. Khan appeared as a prosecution witness and deposed against gangster Chhota Shakeel’s henchman Anjum Fazlani. According to reports, Khan stood in the witness box for about half-an-hour and answered all the questions. The prints of the movies were seized by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in 2001 after reports that funds were used from questionable sources. CBI also contended that the movie was produced by Nazim Rizvi and financed by Shah at the instance of absconding gangster, Chhota Shakeel. The film, a family drama revolving on the sensitive issue of surrogate motherhood, was mired in controversy after both Shah and Rizvi were arrested and sent to custody.
