Pakistani actress Meera is likely to take legal action against director Param Gill, who is making Rockin' Meera, a film based on her life with Nauheed Cyrusi in the lead role.
Meera's publicist and spokesperson Dale Bhagwagar has filed a complaint on her behalf with the Association of Motion Pictures and Television Programme Producers (AMPTPP).
He has requested the authorities to look into the matter and arrange for a special show for Meera before permitting public screening.
"Initially we thought the name of the film being the same as the actress was coincidental. But with reports about the film having similarities to her real life, we became skeptical. If there are any sequences in the film which resemble Meera's life then the makers will have to take permission for the same," Bhagwagar said.
"Meera is in Pakistan right now and is expected to return to Mumbai in the first week of July. If the news is true, she will take legal recourse," he added.
Rockin' Meera stars a host of Indian and US actors, including Sonu Sood, US-based rapper Terrance Quaites (TQ), Debra Wilson, Fatso Fasano, Nicole Cherie Saletta, Sayaji Shinde and Sachin Khedekar.
Earlier, the film found itself in trouble when a unit member misbehaved with actress Nandana Sen, who walked out of the film.
