Gangster Abu Salem has slapped a legal notice on the makers of the movie 'Sanju', for allegedly portraying wrong information about him in the movie.
Abu Salem's lawyer has sent the notice to Raj Kumar Hirani, Vidhu Vinod Chopra, the distributors and the production companies involved, demanding the removal of scenes which allegedly caused defamation to the gangster.
In the notice, Abu Salem also threatened the makers with defamation case if the scenes are not removed within a period of 15 days.
Referring to a scene which was allegedly false, the notice stated, "The scene where Ranbir Kapoor (pictured as Sanjay Dutt) gives confessional statement about the possession of arms and ammunition during the communal tensions around our country in the year 1993 is defaming my client as my client never supplied the arms and ammunition as alleged to Mr Sanjay Dutt as pictured in the said film."
The notice claimed that Salem never met actor Sanjay Dutt or supplied arms and ammunition to him.
The gangster is serving a life sentence in jail after being convicted in the 1993 Mumbai blasts. He has also been sentenced to seven years rigorous imprisonment in 2002 extortion case by Delhi Court.
'Sanju' which is based on the life of actor Sanjay Dutt was released on June 29.
