When there is a movie being made based on the life of Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt’s fans, there is a lot of hype expected! Munna Bhai, Sallu Bhai, a docu-drama, being directed by Muazzam Beg, is now shelved, thanks to Salman’s office which threatened the film maker of a legal action over allegedly misusing his name.
A source close to the Jai Ho actor said, “We first emailed him asking him to refrain from using Salman’s name to promote his film. But he continued despite our mail, so we then wrote him that we would take legal action.”
Director Beg confirms the news by saying, “I have shot 30 per cent of my film and had invested around R50 lakh in the project. My film was going to tell a die-hard Sallu fan’s story and it would have been great if I could make the film. But I won’t be doing so now.”
He confesses that it was his mistake that he didn’t take Sallu’s permission to make a film on him and his fans.”I announced my film just after the Supreme Court sentenced Sanjay Dutt. There was no objection from his side, but Salman doesn’t approve of my film.”
