Gangster Abu Salem has filed a legal notice against the makers of the movie ‘Sanju’, for allegedly portraying wrong information about him in the movie.
His lawyer has sent notice to Raj Kumar Hirani, Vidhu Vinod Chopra, the distributors and the production companies involved, demanding the removal of scenes which allegedly caused defamation to Abu Salem. He demanded the removal of the scenes within a period of 15 days.
The notice claimed that Salem never met actor Sanjay Dutt or supplied arms and ammunition to him.
“The scene where Ranbir Kapoor (pictured as Sanjay Dutt) gives confessional statement about the possession of arms and ammunition during the communal tensions around our country in the year 1993 is defaming my client as my client never supplied the arms and ammunition as alleged to Mr. Sanjay Dutt as pictured in the said film.” the notice said referring to a scene in the film.
The gangster is serving a life sentence in jail after being convicted in the 1993 Mumbai blasts. He has also been sentenced to seven years rigorous imprisonment in 2002 extortion case by Delhi Court.
