Aishwarya Rai In Legal Soup Over Biopic on Sarabjit SIngh



As we all know, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is all set to make her comeback on screen with Sanjay Gupta‘s Jazbaa.

And she also has a couple of other interesting projects in her kitty. One of those happen to be Mary Kom director Omung Kumar’s biopic on Sarabjit Singh. But, this venture has now run into rough weather, with Omung and Aishwarya having been served a legal notice by one of the sisters of Sarabjit.

Sarabjit Singh was an Indian national convicted of spying by a Pakistani court. He was condemned and sentenced to death in 1991, but the sentence was repeatedly postponed. Despite the repeated efforts of the Indian government, several rallies and petitions, mercy release wasn’t granted to him. His sister Dalbir Kaur led a concerted effort in getting Sarbjit released from Pakistan jail, but to no avail. In April 2013, Sarabjit was reportedly attacked brutally by fellow inmates and he died six days later.

Omung had taken the permission of Dalbir Kaur while scripting the film. And Ash had been chosen to play her character in it.

After initial reluctance, an emotional Dalbir had said that though it will be difficult for her to go through the traumatic experience, she wanted this story to be told.

But it is now learnt that Sarabjit’s alleged sister Baljinder Singh has sent a legal notice to Omung and Aishwarya. Apparently, that’s because she feels the biopic might not show her brother in good light.
