Sajid Khan has been accused of being involved in the 2013 Indian Premier League (IPL) betting scandal.
The accusation is based on bookie Sonu Jalan’s confessions to the police. Jalan had previously stated Arbaaz Khan’s involvement in the betting racket as well, and he is now being investigated by the police. According to a source, “If any of these film people are arrested, it will have repercussions on the films they are participating in. While the case is rather old, the names of these people have emerged after seven years. In fact, Arbaaz has been harassed by Sonu Jalan for non-payment of dues lost in betting.”, Asian Age reported. Murad Khetani, producer of ‘Mubarakan’ (2017) and ‘Mickey Virus’ (2013), has also been named.
Sajid Khan is planning to complete ‘Housefull 4’ for a Diwali 2019 release. Arbaaz Khan is currently producing ‘Dabangg 3’ with Prabhudheva as director. Khetani is involved in the remake of Telugu film ‘Arjun Reddy’ (2017) starring Shahid Kapoor.
