Vikram Vashishtha, who’s the nephew of real life spy (late) Ravindra Kaushik, has sent a legal notice to Yash Raj Films asking them for a special screening of the film. Vashishtha said that his mama, (late) Ravindra Kaushik was sent on a secret intelligence mission to Pakistan. Vashishtha has alleged that the promos of Ek Tha Tiger bear a striking resemblance to his uncle’s experiences in Pakistan and hence his family has sought legal assistance to either have a look at the original script or see the film before it releases nationwide.
It was a sentiment for Sallu Bhai to release his movies on Eid. All his recent blockbusters, Wanted, Ready, Bodyguard released on the same day. We will have to see if this controversy disturbs the sentiment.
