Ek Tha Tiger in a new controversy
Vikram Vashishtha, who happens to be the nephew of real life spy (late) Ravindra Kaushik, has sent a legal notice to the production company (Yash Raj Films) asking for a special screening of Ek Tha Tiger. The copies of the legal notice have also been sent to Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and the Film & TV Producers Guild and Film Federation of India.
Vashishtha also added that the promos of Ek Tha Tiger bore a striking resemblance to his uncle’s experiences in Pakistan and hence his family has sought legal assistance to either have a look at the original script or view the film before it releases.
Meanwhile, Madhav Mitra, Vashishtha’s counsel claims that the resemblance is on the account that the promos show that ISI (Pakistan agency) and RAW (Indian Agency) indulged in day-to-day war. He also added that the promos reveal that the agent named ‘Tiger’ worked in Pakistan and had an affair with a Pakistani girl, fought for the country as well as for his love. He reasoned out stating that since Shashi Vashishtha, the mother of his client Vikram is (late) Ravindra’s only sister, the family has the full right to either go through the certified screenplay or watch it prior to national and international release.
