Rajkumar Hirani’s latest directorial Sanju has won hearts worldwide. The film has raked in more than Rs 300 crore and becomes Ranbir Kapoor’s biggest hit ever.
Sanju is a biopic based on the life and times of Sanjay Dutt. In the movie, we got to see different phases of Dutt’s life from being a drug addict, possession of arms, jail term, Munna Bhai among others.
Talking about this, ANI tweeted, “Gangster Abu Salem sends a legal notice to makers of ‘Sanju’ movie, seeks publication of contradiction to the wrong information about him in the movie and an apology. Notice also states that if makers of the movie fail to do so in 15 days, he will file a defamation case against them.”
The notice read as, “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.”
In the notice, it is also said that the contents in the film are, “extremely insinuating, disparaging and defamatory attacking the reputation of Salem.”
