As per reports, a case has been registered against filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Alia Bhatt and Bhansali Productions by Gangubai Kathiawadi’s son Babuji Rawji Shah, for ‘indecent representation’ of the Kathiawadi family. Reportedly, Shah has also filed a case against writer Hussain Zaidi and reporter Jane Borges. Hussain penned the book The Mafia Queens of Mumbai, on which the movie is based, while the original research is credited to Jane.
In a statement, Babuji Rawji Shah’s lawyer Narendra Dubey said, “Ever since the promo of the film came out, rumours have spread and Shah has been harassed in his own locality. His leg was fractured after being hit. His relatives are also suffering as they are now being known as coming from a ‘prostitute family’.” He added that they may also file a criminal complaint.
