A senior lawyer has sent a legal notice to actor and producer Ajay Devgn for hurting the religious sentiments of the Sikh community in his forthcoming movie Son of Sardaar.
As per the notice sent by lawyer Navkiran Singh after watching the official trailer of the movie on YouTube, Sikhs are shown in “bad light” in some parts of the movie.He had mentioned about the content available to the public through the official trailer on YouTube, which has comment like "Had there been no Sikhs, who would have invented abuses like Teree Maan Dee-Teree Bhain Dee."
Another portion of the movie has a dialogue, "In case Sardars would not have been there then on whom would the jokes be made."
As per the notice, "Your (Ajay Devgn) official trailer on YouTube contains such material and the film may contain more."
Navkiran Singh has requested the actor to delete such dialogues from the movie in public interest or else his office plans to take legal action against Devgn and all others involved in execution of this film on the criminal as well as civil side.
The notice has given Ajay Devgn seven days to respond.
More on the film
Ajay Devgn will romance Sonakshi Sinha for the first time, who will once again be seen in an Indian get-up. The film is directed by Ashwani Dhir.
Salman Khan has also apparently agreed to do an item number in the film for Ajay Devgn and that too for free. The Dabangg star was reportedly signed on as he was most suited for the number. The song will be shot in a studio in Mumbai, where a special set will be built.
SOS is slated for November 13, 2012 release. It will clash with Yash Chopra's untitled comeback movie starring Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma.
Ajay, however, is unperturbed by the competition, saying there's space for two films on the big Diwali weekend. "Diwali's been lucky for me with films like Golmaal Returns (2008), All The Best (2009) and Golmaal 3. Rascals (2011), that released last Dussera, had a vulgar streak, I'll never do a film like that again. I don't know about their (YRF's) film, but SOS is a comic love story with lots of action, a perfect festival film."
