Mumbai, June 16: It seems like Bachchan family is facing tough times these days. After megastar Amitabh, his daughter in law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has to face legal wrangling now.
Aishwarya Rai recently had signed a contract to work in a biopic film, based on the life of Sarabjit Singh, an Indian prisoner in Pakistan. The film was being made under the direction of Omang Kumar.
Rai was supposed to play the role of Sarabjit Singh's sister Dalbir Kaur in the film.
Reportedly, Baljinder Singh who claims to be a real sister of Sarabjit Singh has now sent both
Aishwarya and Omang a legal notice over the film. She has even threatened to move to the court for the same.
Baljinder quoted by TOI as saying, "I am not against a movie on the life of my brother, he died for this country. All I want is that his real story be shown to people and not what is being portrayed".
On asking about whether Baljinder Singh was Sarabjit Singh's real sister, Dalbir Kaur evaded the response. She simply said that world knows how I fought for my brother Sarabjit Singh's release singlehandedly.
Sarabjit who was accused of espionage and terrorism was sentenced to death by a Pakistani court. In May last year, he died of cardiac arrest in a Lahore hospital after being comatose for nearly a week following a brutal assault by other inmates in the jail.
Recently, Amitabh Bachchan was slapped with Rs 100 crore notice by a man named Dr Jagbir Rathee. Peeved Rathee alleged that superstar shared his poem on the social media by someone else's name.
