Vidya Balan, Emran Hashmi, Naseeruddin Shah and Tusshar Kapoor are working hard and ensuring film’s success on one hand and on the other hand the movie is involved into a legal mess. Based on the life of south siren Silk Smitha, The Dirty Picture, had been objected to by Silk Smitha’s brother.
Her brother V Naga Vara Prasad has already sent a legal notice to Ekta Kapoor, the producer of the movie’ and Milan Luthria, the director, for not seeking prior permission from his family to make a film on his sister’s life.
Moreover he claims that Ekta’s film is an obscene movie. It is full of unnecessary bold sequences. Prasad also claims that no one form Ekta’s team ever tried to contact him to take consent from him. Reports suggest that Ekta Kapoor and her team made the film by the inputs provided by Smitha’s boyfriend who lives in Chennai.
Prasad, an agriculturist by profession, got to know about the film through television. He lives Kovvali village of Andhra Pradesh. Prasad says he is not interested in monetary settlements but he only wants that his and his family’s feelings shouldn’t be hurt by the movie.
Sources claim that Smitha committed suicide due to financial crisis but her brother claims in an interview that this might not be the truth.
As of now the Ekta and team haven’t replied to the legal notice of Prasad but he plans to send another in few days.
