Published: August 26, 2012
Changidhar/Punjab (August 26, 2012): The term granted by legal notice to Ajay Devgan has expired and the actor-producer has failed to respond to the objections raised by Advocate Navkiran Singh, a Chandigarh based human rights lawyer regarding his upcoming movie titled “Son of Sardar”. Ajay Devgan was slammed with a legal notice by Navkiran Singh on August 16, 2012 and was asked to respond by August 25. The notice had accused Ajay Devgan for patroying Sikhs in bad light in his upcoming movie “Son of Sardar”.
Advocate Navkiran Singh has confirmed that Ajay Devgan has failed to respond to the legal notice. Now Navkiran Singh is preparing to initiate legal action against the actor-producer.
“Notice to Ajay Devgan producer and actor of Son Of Sardar was dispatched on 16th Aug, should have reached him by max 18th (August). Let’s be prepared for a legal battle after 25th Aug and show them that we would not take things lying down any more” Navkiran Singh wrote on his facebook fan page.
The contents of the Legal Notice were as follows:
LEGAL NOTICE TO MAKERS OF SON OF SARDAR MOVIE:
AJAY DEVGAN ( ACTOR & PRODUCER)
ASHWIN DHIR ( DIRECTOR)
You have shown in some parts Sikh’s in a bad light in your upcoming film SON OF SARDAR. I am mentioning about the contents which comment that ” If Sikh’s were not there then who would have invented abuses like….Teree Maan Dee- Tere Bhain Dee”.Also saying that ” in case Sardar would not have been there,then on whom would the jokes be made” is showing the Sikh’s ion bad light and has hurt the Sikh sentiments. I request you to delete such dialogue’s from the film in Public Interest Or we plan to take legal action. Your official trailer on You Tube contains such material and teh film may contain more.
Will wait for your response for 7 days.
