Suniel Shetty spoke about his film File No 323 getting a legal notice from fugitive businessman Mehul Choksi. The actor reacted to allegations that the film tries to defame Mehul.
Suniel Shetty will soon be seen in director Karthik K's File No 323. The film is reportedly inspired by the lives of alleged financial fugitives and also features Anurag Kashyap
Recently, the makers of the film received a legal notice from fugitive businessman Mehul Choksi for allegedly making an attempt to defame him in their film File No 323.
Shetty said it was ‘funny’ to receive a legal notice from Mehul for defaming him, when the film’s director and producers were ‘making something from whatever is available in the public domain’.
Suniel has reacted to Mehul claiming the film tries to defames him. He also added File No 323, which will reportedly feature Anurag as Vijay Mallya, is a ‘bold film’.
Businessman Mehul Choksi had issued a Cease and Desist notice to the producers and director of File No 323 saying he has been referenced in the reports about File No 323.
"We are only recreating information available in the public domain. We are not making a biopic on Mehul Choksi or Vijay Mallya or Nirav Modi.” the producers said
Mehul Choksi and nephew-businessman Nirav Modi, is wanted by Indian authorities in the Punjab National Bank (PNB) scam, where it is alleged that the duo defrauded the bank of more than ₹14,000 crore.
