Even though Salman Khan's forthcoming film Ek Tha Tiger has been creating waves with its promos, all is not well with the film.

Vikram Vashishtha, who happens to be the nephew of real life spy (late) Ravindra Kaushik, has sent a legal notice to the production company (Yash Raj Films) asking for a special screening of Ek Tha Tiger. The copies of the legal notice have also been sent to Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and the Film & TV Producers Guild and Film Federation of India.

Talking about this issue, Vashishtha told a leading daily that (late) Ravindra Kaushik, his maternal uncle, who was with RAW (Research Analysis Wing), displayed his talent at the national level dramatic meet in Lucknow, which was also witnessed by some officials of the Intelligence Wing. He was then contacted and offered a job for the secret intelligence in Pakistan. Later, he was sent to Pakistan for the purpose.

Vashishtha also added that the promos of Ek Tha Tiger bore a striking resemblance to his uncle's experiences in Pakistan and hence his family has sought legal assistance to either have a look at the original script or view the film before it releases.

Meanwhile, Madhav Mitra, Vashishtha's counsel claims that the resemblance is on the account that the promos show that ISI (Pakistan agency) and RAW (Indian Agency) indulged in day-to-day war. He also added that the promos reveal that the agent named 'Tiger' worked in Pakistan and had an affair with a Pakistani girl, fought for the country as well as for his love. He reasoned out stating that since Shashi Vashishtha, the mother of his client Vikram is (late) Ravindra's only sister, the family has the full right to either go through the certified screenplay or watch it prior to national and international release.
