Mustaq has alleged that when the script for the movie was being researched, his family members were contacted and consulted by them. He also added that the producers had advertised that the movie was based on Latif’s life.

He has now sought injunction against the release of this film and said that the second part of the film shows Latif in a very defamatory manner.

 

He adds the film will damage the family’s reputation and has demanded Rs 101 crore in damages.
