The Chandigarh Police summoned Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, his sister Alvira Khan and six others on Friday after a cheating complaint was lodged by a local businessman, Arun Gupta. In his complaint, Mr. Gupta said that he started an exclusive store under Salman's Jewellery brand and added that he was given assurances of backup and the means for promoting his venture; neither of which were allegedly fulfilled. Having said that, the jewellery brand handling the manufacture and the sale of the products under Salman Khan's brand, Style Quotient, has now issued a clarification stating the issue does not involve the actor, nor his sister Alvira or members of the Being Human foundation.
Style Quotient's official clarification is as follows:
"1) In Dec 2015. Being Human-The Salman Khan Foundation appointed Style Quotient Jewellery Pvt Limited (SQJPL) as their global licensee for the jewellery vertical. The same was for handling manufacturing & Sales of Jewellery under the Brand Name of Being Human
2) On 3rd August 2018, SQJPL signed an MOU with the Modern Jewels (Arun Gupta) to be the first Franchisee of Being Human Jewellery.
3) The current matter is between SQJPL and Modern Jewels alone as neither Being Human- The Salman Khan Foundation, Salman Khan, Alvira Khan nor any other representative of the Foundation are parties to the said MOU and they have nothing to do with it. In fact, Mr. Salman Khan is only the owner of the Brand Being Human and not even a trustee of the Being Human Foundation.
We sincerely request Media houses to ascertain facts with the concerned authorities where the complaint has been registered before publishing or republishing any media article about this matter.We at SQJPL have already submitted a written response which clarifies all of the abme. Since the matter is currently sub judice, we will not be able to comment more.
We would also like to clarify that Alvira Khan, representatives of Being Human - The Salman Khan Foundation have always been extremely supportive of their partners and we will always hold them in high esteem."
