Mumbai: Karim Morani from Cineyug Entertainment was, as you can remember, arrested as a conspirator in the 2G scam. The buzz in the industry is that Karim was rather close with a few Bollywood super stars, including the popular Shahrukh Khan. While we’re on the subject, we have to say that SRK has just unveiled his latest project on Tuesday in Mumbai. This happened just after Karim was taken into custody.
From what e have been able to find out it seems that Karim has even a part of SRK’s IPL team, the famous Kolkata Knight Riders. Not to mention that Morani’s daughter, Zoa is part of a project produced by Red Chillies which belongs to SRK. However, it appears that for the time being Shahrukh Khan wants to distance himself from the Morani family, at least professionally.
When asked to comment on this subject SRK had to say that “I have personal relations with the Moranis, but they have not made any investments in Red Chillies. The law will take its own course, let’s not sensationalize the issue by dragging Bollywood stars into it.”
Karim Morani was the director of the company called Cineyug Entertainment which was established in 1983 and ever since that time has produced several Bollywood movies including Sunny Deol’s Damini. Morani has also been involved in the planning of several international shows in tinsel town. If you do not know, most of the awards ceremonies as well as the Femina Miss India 2009 as organized by the Moranis.
In fact Karim alongside his brother Aly are considered to be two of the most influential producers in B-town. “I have worked very closely with Karim Morani for shows and concerts. He actually had a hard condition because of heart by-pass surgeries. Law will take its own course and till the time he is proved guilty, he is not guilty,” said SRK.
