UTV, the makers of the upcoming Emraan Hashmi, Vidya Balan starrer Ghanchakkar, seem to have landed in some legal trouble. Apparently, a lesser known writer hailing from Nepal, Dhirendra Kumar, has slapped the producers with a legal notice alleging that the film is based on a script he had written.
Furthering his claim Kumar has sent a legal notice to the production house, seeking a stay order on the film from the High Court. While on the other hand, UTV claims that though they have received the notice from the lawyer of the said individual and are in the process of replying, the claims made are absolutely untrue.
Ghanchakkar directed by Raj Kumar Gupta is slated for release on June 28.
