New Delhi: Actor-filmmaker Arbaaz Khan has said the family - father Salim Khan and brothers Salman and Sohail - will be taking legal action against director Abhinav Kashyap who, in a lengthy Facebook post, accused them of harassment and of sabotaging his 2013 film Besharam. Mr Kashyap directed 2010 film Dabangg, starring both Salman and Arbaaz Khan, and has not worked since Besharam. Speaking to Hindustan Times, Arbaaz Khan, who directed Dabanng 2 after Kashyap left the project, said he doesn't know where Kashyap's allegations are "coming from" and that the Khans had taken legal action against him once before.

"We have had no communication with Abhinav since we started working on Dabangg 2. We parted ways professionally. Don't know where all this coming from. We are taking legal action," Arbaaz Khan told Hindustan Times. Abhinav Kashyap levelled these allegations in a previous Facebook post as well. "We have already taken legal action even before this post; it was after his earlier post," Arbaaz Khan told Hindustan Times.

Salman and Arbaaz's father Salim Khan has also addressed the accusations, saying they are not worth his time. Speaking to Bombay Times, he said "Let him do whatever he wants, I am not going to waste time in reacting to what he says." In a Facebook post shared this week, Abhinav Kashyap alleged that he quit as director of Dabangg 2 because the Khans were "trying to control (his) career by bullying (him)."
