Veteran actor and director Manoj Kumar has filed a lawsuit against Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan for releasing Om Shanti Om (2007) film in Japan without deleting scenes that make fun of him.

Manoj Kumar is seeking 1 billion rupees ($18.5 million) in damages from Shah Rukh Khan and Eros International, the producers of the film Om Shanti Om.

The veteran actor had approached a court when the movie was first released in 2007, objecting to scenes spoofing his mannerisms. In 2008, a Mumbai court ordered that the scenes be deleted from any future screenings of the film, and Khan apologized to Kumar.

Kumar said the film was recently released in Japan without deleting the scenes.
