Filmmaker Mukesh Bhatt has taken legal action against film critic Raja Sen. Reason: Sen suggested in a recent column that viewers should watch pirated versions of Bhatt’s film Blood Money to seek revenge from Viacom 18, the co-producers of the film, for not releasing Hollywood flick Hugo in India.

In a column published in a Mumbai tabloid on Wednesday, Sen wrote, ‘I recommend at least some mild revenge if we don’t get a taste of Hugo in 3D: Viacom 18’s next release, Blood Money, hits theatres on the 30th of March, and I feel we should do with it exactly what they suggest we do with Marty’s (Martin Scorsese’s) film: do please pirate it, won’t you?’ Bhatt lashes out: “I am shocked, as a film producer and as the vice president of the film producers’ guild. We are talking to the PM to take action against piracy and here’s someone advocating it. We’ve sent him a legal notice.”

Sen, on his part, tweeted, ‘I have nothing against Blood money. If Gangs Of Wasseypur, one of my most awaited films of the year, was up next, I’d have said the same.’
