UK Based Fictional Firm Listed Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan’s Family Members as Directors
According to Companies House, the UK government agency that maintains a record of companies, Bros Brother International Ltd was founded on December 28, 2016.
A UK based fictional firm Bros Brother International Ltd — which was founded in 28th December 2016 — is reported to have had the names of Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan’s family members including Salim Khan, Arbaaz Khan, Sohail Khan and Being Human foundation. According to The Indian Express, the registered address of the firm was a mailbox at Knightsbridge in London.
According to Companies House — the United Kingdom government agency that maintains a record of companies — learnt that Bros Brother International had 13 listed directors including Shah Rukh Khan and Salman’s Being Human Foundation.
The address of Shah Rukh on the company profile mentioned his Mumbai’s residence, Mannat while Salim Khan’s address is of his residence at Galaxy Apartments, located in Bandra.
According to records, Bros Brothers was engaged in the “activities of extraterritorial organisations and bodies”, and dissolved in February 2019.
Besides Khan, the company had also listed yet another director, identified as Anjali Sharma. The address of Sharma was of a mail box service provider in London. Notably, Anjali Sharma was the name of one of the characters in Karan Johar’s film ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’, which had Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and Rani Mukherjee in the lead roles.
“It is someone’s deranged idea of a joke. Registering all Indian actors as directors of this almost fictional company,” said Paul Myers, lead support of the BBC Investigation Initiative, who came across Bros Brothers International during his online research on companies in the UK. However, it is yet to be known if the fictional company was started with the purpose of using influential personalities’ names and reputation without their knowledge.
When the manager of Salman Khan was approached by The Indian Express, Jordy Patel said that neither Salman Khan’s Being Human Foundation nor his family members were ever associated with the company. “We are not even aware of this. Salman Khan and his family have nothing to do with Bros Brothers International,” said Patel.
Shah Rukh’s manager is yet to react to the news.
