The very moment the promos of Sanjay Gupta's Shootout At Wadala went viral, it had everybody stumped when they saw and heard Sonu Sood 'introducing' himself as Dawood Ibrahim. In the past, even though Bollywood had many characters modeled on 'D', none were named after him directly.
But since nothing could have been done to the promos that had hit the internet, Balaji Motion Pictures played a sensible move by issuing a disclaimer before the promo, which states, "…In certain cases, incidents, character's timings have been changed or fictionalised for dramatic purposes. Certain characters may be composites or entirely fictitious. Some names and locations have been changed. The scenes depicted may be a hybrid of fact and fiction…"
On his part, even though Sanjay confirmed the name changes, he said that they will be redubbing for several portions, but won't be reshooting any portions. He admitted that the reason for the name change was that he had received many phone calls and was pressured into taking that decision.
