A local court will on Tuesday hear actor Salman Khan's complaints against directors of Cinevistas Ltd regarding eight bounced cheques amounting to Rs 26.42 lakh due to him for acting in their film
Garv - Pride and Honour
released two years ago.
The judicial magistrate had earlier issued bailable warrants against the directors of Cinevista, Sunil Mehta and Premkishen but cancelled them later after they appeared before the court.
Salman acted in the lead role in the film for which he was promised Rs 26.42 lakh. Accordingly, eight cheques were issued to him under various denominations but were dishonoured by the bank with the remark "payment stopped by drawer."
The actor served legal notice on Cinevista and its directors under section 138 of Negotiable Instruments Act on August 6 last year and when they did not respond, he moved the court, his lawyer Dipesh Mehta said.
Salman filed separate complaints of bouncing of eight cheques in a magistrate's court on September 19 last year. A month later, the court issued summons for the Cinevista directors.
As they failed to appear, bailable warrants were issued but cancelled after they came before the court.
