Just as when one thought that Salman Khan was successful in shrugging off the proverbial ‘bad boy’ tag from him, it seems that his wait just got longer. While on one hand, he has been in the centre of controversy with his by-now-infamous ‘raped woman’ remark, on the other hand, (as per market reports), there are some issues brewing within his apparel brand ‘Being Human’, of which he is the brand ambassador and a co-owner alongwith Mandhana Industries.
As per the information in a leading business daily, the shares of Mandhana Industries have tumbled around 60% since last week, mainly because of the speculation that the company was having differences with Salman Khan’s charitable trust over the profit sharing terms for selling ‘Being Human’s clothing line. Readers may know that, as per the understanding between Mandhana Industries and Salman Khan’s ‘Being Human Foundation’, the former had the rights to sell ‘Being Human’s branded clothing line, for which around 5% of royalty was paid to ‘Being Human Foundation’.
The news report added that when Mandhana Industries was in the process of signing a new contract with ‘Being Human Foundation’, Salman Khan (allegedly) demanded equal profit sharing or royalty from Mandhana Industries sale of ‘Being Human’ branded products.
Repeated attempts to reach the spokesperson of Mandhana Industries proved futile.
