Alia Bhatt And Sanjay Leela Bhansali Summoned By The Court In A Defamation Case
Bollywood actor Alia Bhatt and Sanjay Leela Bhansali have been asked to be present at the court on May 25th as their film Gangubai Kathiawadi has landed in trouble. Have a look at the details here.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi has been the talk of the town ever since the teaser of the film was released on the internet. The film has landed into fresh trouble as a man named Baburao, who claims to be the adopted son of Gangubai herself, has slapped a defamation case on the team as he believes that the film misinterpreted various facts. He was also of the stance that the original book by Hussain Zaidi, named Mafia Queens of Mumbai, was also factually incorrect. The Mumbai High Court has now decided to run the case as Alia Bhatt, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, and the writers of Gangubai Kathiawadi have been summoned on May 21, 2021. It is yet to be seen if the prosecution has enough evidence to carry the case forward.
Here is a look at the ZEE5 video with details related to the defamation case slapped on the Gangubai Kathiawadi team:
The shooting of the film Gangubai Kathiawadi was recently resumed after director Sanjay Leela Bhansali tested negative for COVID 19 after staying in isolation for more than 14 days. The cast and crew involved in the making of the film are now facing legal charges as a defamation case has been filed against them. According to the video attached above, the writers of the film, actor Alia Bhatt, and director Sanjay Leela Bhansali have been summoned to the Mumbai High Court on May 21, 2021, to present the case lawfully.
According to the case filed by Baburao Shah, the makers have not presented the facts in the film, causing him a great deal of humiliation. The man claims that he is the adopted son of Gangubai and the film is not fit for a release. He also clarified that the events mentioned in the book The Mafia Queens of Mumbai are incorrect and haven’t been cross-checked. The court had not proceeded with the case earlier since Baburao had not presented any evidence to prove that he is indeed the son of Gangubai. The case is now officially in court and is expected to move forward after the 21st.
