Alia Bhatt and Sanjay Leela Bhansali have been summoned by the Mumbai court in regards to film Gangubai Kathiawadi defamation row
‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ continues to be in the limelight, but for all the wrong reasons. Recently, a criminal defamation case filed by Babu Rawji Shah, one of the four children adopted by Gangubai Kathiawadi. Now, the Mumbai Court has summoned Alia Bhatt and Sanjay Leela Bhansali in regards to the case.
The petitioner Baburao Shah, who is the adopted son of Gangubai Kathiawadi, has claimed that his family is being shown in a wrong way in the film and that many facts are also wrong. The film is based on a book written by Hussain Zaidi titled ‘Mafia Queens of Mumbai’. He has also been asked to be present in the court.
Earlier, Baburao had filed a petition in a Mumbai civil court, seeking a restraining order against the film, ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ and its trailers, however, it was rejected.
