The team of the upcoming film ‘Ram Setu’, including actors Akshay Kumar, Jacqueline Fernandez, and Nushrratt Bharuccha, have received legal notices for ‘distorting’ facts in the drama.
BJP leader Subramanian Swamy, who sent the legal notice, accused Hindi cinema of being in a habit of representing facts. The politician tweeted: “Mumbai cinema [or is it sin-e-ma] wallas have a bad habit of falsifying and misappropriation. Hence to teach them Intellectual Property Rights, I have through Satya Sabharwal Adv issued Legal Notice to Cine Actor Akshay Kumar (Bhatia) and 8 others for distorting Ram Setu saga.”
The notice demanded that script/frames related to Ram Setu are shared with Subramanian Swamy to prevent any falsification or wrong picturization of facts in the future.
To amicably solve the issue, it demanded credit to the BJP leader for his contribution to the Ram Setu case in the opening credits of the film. The petition also said that Subramanian should be given the final script and invited to watch the film before it is released to the public.
‘Ram Setu’ is the upcoming movie directed by Abhishek Sharma. The film stars Akshay Kumar, Jacqueline Fernandez, Nushrratt Bharuccha, and Satya Dev, who follow an archaeologist investigating the nature of Ram Setu. Adam’s Bridge or Ram Setu is a chain of natural limestone shoals, connecting India and Sri Lanka.
