An additional chief metropolitan magistrate of Mumbai court has summoned the actor and director of Gangubai Kathiawadi along with the two writers of the film regarding the criminal defamation case connected to the film. While the film is based on a chapter from Hasan Zaidi’s book, Mafia Queens Of Mumbai, Babu Ravji Shah claims that the image of Gangubai Kathiawadi is defamatory in the book. The chapter, according to him, has tarnished her image and infringed upon the right to privacy and self-respect.

Since Bhansali is the director of the film, the case has been filed against him along with Alia Bhatt. The two are expected to be present in court on May 21. Prior to this, the Sessions Court had dismissed his plea to not air the trailers and teasers after Babu Ravji Shah failed to provide evidences that prove him to be the adopted son of Gangubai Kathiawadi.
