Underworld don Abu Salem has threatened to sue the makers of Sanjay Dutt’s Biopic, ‘Sanju’ over certain claims made against him in the film.
The notice was sent through Salem’s advocate Prashant Pandey raising obligation over the scene where Sanjay Dutt (Ranbir Kapoor) makes a confessional statement for keeping illegal arms.
A notice is sent to director-producer Rajkumar Hirani, co-producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra, and production houses Fox Star Studio, Vinod Chopra films, 20th Century Fox, and Rajkumar Hirani films alleging that the makers defamed Salem in the film.
Objecting to a film scene, the notice stated that it was based on facts that were false. “The scene where Ranbir Kapoor (pictured as Sanjay Dutt) gives a confessional statement about possession of arms and ammunition during communal tension around our country in 1993, is defaming my client (Salem), as my client never supplied the arms and ammunition, as alleged to Sanjay Dutt, as pictured in the film,” the notice read.
“My client neither met Sanjay Dutt nor supplied any arms or ammunition to him, as portrayed by you in your film,” the notice reiterated.
Salem has also threatened the makers to sue in the court if they failed to publish an apology in this regard.
