High Court has directed Ekta Kapoor, the producer of Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai, to show a disclaimer that the movie is not based on former Pakistani actor Rehana.
The Lucknow bench directed Kapoor, creative director Shobha Kapoor and director Milan Luthria to publish an order to this effect in five leading newspapers of the country, and also foreign newspapers.
The order was passed on Monday on a petition filed by relatives of Rehana, whose role was played by actor Kangna Ranaut in the film.
Munna Khad and others, who reside in Pakistan, contended that the portrayal of the character undermines the reputation of the erstwhile actor.
In the pursuance of the court’s earlier order, the replies were filed on behalf of the Kapoors and Luthria through their counsels. In their reply, the three had said that the film does not seek to depict the life or character of any individual living or dead.
