Salman Khan has sent a legal notice of Rs 15 crore to Veer producer Vijay Galani. The filmmaker had asked the actor to slash his fee after the film supposedly flopped, but later declared a profit of Rs 10 crore.

A source close to the film informs Mumbai Mirror, “Eros International immediately got out of this controversy by making it very clear to Salman that they had only struck an acquisition deal with Galani for Veer. This means that Galani was paid an x amount and 50 per cent of the overflow (profit) was to be shared between Eros and Galani if the film was a box-office success.”

Galani had apparently painted a wrong financial picture for the movie. When Salman came to know that Galani has been flaunting a profit on the movie, he decided to take legal action.

SalmanSays the source, "There is a reason why Salman was driven to send Galani this legal notice. Galani had been flaunting the fact that he has made a Rs 10 crore profit on Veer despite the film bombing at the box office. Obviously, when Salman got to know of this, he was furious."

Galani however refutes the reports. “I have not received any legal notice. And I did not make any profit from Veer.”
