Superstar Salman Khan has filed a defamation suit against Ketan Kakkar, his neighbour at the Panvel Farmhouse. The star has allegedly accused his neighbour Ketan of defaming Salman in the media. 

It is said, on January 14, Salman’s legal team demanded all the abusive content against him on social networking sites be removed or blocked. Later, the Mumbai City Civil Court, on Friday, January 14, refused to pass any interim restraining order in favour of Salman Khan, who sued a neighbour for alleged defamation. Reports say that Ketan Kakkar is a resident of Malad, and owns land near Salman Khan’s farmhouse in Panvel.

As per Salman’s advocate, Ketan defamed Salman with a YouTuber. It is also reported that two other people and social media companies like Google, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook have been made parties in this case.
