According to a report in the Hindi daily, a social activist from Chitrakoot, UP has sent a legal notice to Jaishree production company, film actor Salman Khan and director Kabir Khan. The activist named Anil Singh Pradhan has demanded that the title and obnoxious scenes of the film must be changed.
