FAN: Shah Rukh gets legal notice

In one of the scenes of the film, Shah Rukh Khan's duplicate was seen carrying a box of 'Ghantewala' sweet when he goes to meet his favourite actor Aryan Khanna in Mumbai.

Jain, who claims that his shop has been operating in old Delhi since 1790, wants filmmakers to remove the dialogues and scenes that "infringe the trademark" of the shop. He wants all the references of his brand name must be removed as they (filmmakers) didn't seek prior permission for the same.

Legal notice has also been given to Yash Raj Films, Aditya Chopra, director Maneesh Sharma, writers Habib Faisal and Sharat Katariya.

The notice was quoted by the daily as saying, "Our client is perhaps a one-of-a-kind business that has, over the past more than 225 years of its existence, witnessed history unfold before itself and has been instrumental in its own way in shaping it".

Filmmakers have yet not responded on the legal notice.
