Vidya Balan starrer 'Sherni', which was recently released on Amazon Prime Video, seems to be embroiled in controversies. Hyderabad-based shooter Asghar Ali Khan is planning to take legal action against the filmmakers. Asghar claims that he sent a legal notice to the filmmakers about 15 days ago, to which he is not satisfied with the reply.
'Sherni' can get caught in legal clutches
Asghar says that facts have been distorted regarding the killing of lioness 'Avni' in the film. Asghar Ali Khan said in a conversation with news agency IEANS, 'We are in talks with our legal advisors. However, we have not taken a final decision on this yet.
The shooter went on the call of the government
Let us tell you that Asghar Ali is the son of well-known shooter Nawab Safat Ali Khan who had killed the lioness Avni in Yavatmal, Maharashtra in the year 2018. Asghar has alleged that in the film, he has been shown as 'trigger-happy shooters' as if he likes to hunt unnecessarily. He clearly said, 'We went there on a call by the government and killed the man-eating lioness who killed 14 people, but in the film it is shown as if we were hunting for fun.'
Asghar said the film could tarnish his image and add fuel to the fire in several sensitive matters which are already subject to judgment. Asghar also said that distorting facts in the film comes in defiance of the court's order.
