British High Court Dismisses $40 Million Claim Against Bollywood-Loving Sheikh


“I mean, I do have some very special ones, some sentimental feelings, personal tastes, I do have,” he continued in broken English. “But in general, all of them, they are the same.” He added that he would keep his personal favorites to himself.

Sheikh Hamad asserted that Mr. Ahmed had initially told him the private meetings would cost around $50,000, but that after introducing him to several Bollywood celebrities he started to make “unwarranted demands for very large sums of money.”

After meeting four Bollywood stars and paying $3 million in fees, he felt that he was being taken advantage of and said that he had informed Mr. Ahmed he should not arrange any further meetings.

According to Mr. Ahmed’s account, the sheikh told him that his family had taken over his funds because they did not approve of his expensive Bollywood passion, but that he went on to meet 15 other Bollywood stars through another agent.

“Mr. Saffy, the sheikh’s assistant, menacingly said that I would be in ‘big trouble’ if I did not leave the sheikh alone after it became clear he would not pay,” Mr. Ahmed said, adding that he had faced threats and intimidation since his lawyers sent their first letter to the sheikh.

Sheikh Hamad said in a statement after Friday’s judgment, “It was with a heavy heart that I was forced to defend myself against this claim, since I had considered Mr. Ahmed to be a friend whom I trusted, and had always treated him with generosity and kindness.”

“After my dad passed away, he was an element in my life,” he said, in reference to Mr. Ahmed. “I wanted to get to know him as a brother, as a new friend in my life. So, we started like this. And he was very much aware of this matter.”
