Underworld gangster Abu Salem recently sent a legal notice to the makers of Bollywood movie ‘Sanju’ Rajkumar Hirani and Vidhu Vinod Chopra among others for giving out wrong information about him in the Ranbir Kapoor starrer Sanjay Dutt biopic.
The notice which sent through lawyer Prashant Pandey states that Salem did not meet actor Sanjay Dutt nor supply arms and ammunitions to the actor as portrayed in the film. The notice claimed that Salem never met Dutt.
“All allegations levelled in the scenes are preposterous, absurd, ridiculous and libellous in character. The baseless allegations made in the film have injured my client’s reputation, lowered him in the eyes of others and exposed him to ridicule and dislike,” reads the notice.
The notice stated that the scene should be eliminated within 15 day of receipt of the legal notice, failing which appropriate legal action would be taken.
Salem is currently serving life sentence for his involvement in the 1993 Bombay blast case.
