Baljinder Kaur, who claims to be the sister of Sarabjit Singh, who was killed in a Pakistani jail in 2013, is up in arms against director Omung Kumar and actor Aishwarya Rai for shooting the biopic ‘Sarbjit’ on her ‘brother’.
Baljinder, a resident of New Moti Nagar here, said she had already served a legal notice on the director and actor for making the film in which they were featuring Dalbir Kaur as Sarbjit’s sister “while she is not even a family member”. She said she did not get a reply from the director and actor, who have reportedly shot some scenes of the movie.
“I have decided to move the Punjab and Haryana high court against the shooting of the film based on distorted facts,” she said. “Earlier, filmmaker Subhash Ghai had planned a film on this. I wrote to Ghai following which he gave up the idea.”
Baljinder told HT that when she came to know that Omung was to make the film, she sent the legal notice to the director and Aishwarya, but they never replied. She said she was shocked to know that the shooting of the film had started.
Baljinder came into limelight in July 2013 when she held the bhog ceremony for Sarabjit in Ludhiana claiming that she was his real sister. She alleged that Dalbir was posing as Sarabjit’s sister for financial gains.
