Mumbai: Great Grand Masti has been embroiled in controversies since several weeks. The film’s release was brought forward to July 15 after the adult comedy leaked online. Now, Shiney Ahuja has served a legal notice to Balaji Motion Pictures and it’s Managing Director, Ekta Kapoor, over naming a character of a maid in the movie as ‘Shiney’.
The legal notice has been served by a Chandigarh-based legal firm and the actor has called for immediate removal of the name "Shiney" from the movie.
Speaking to The Indian Express, Neeraj Chaudhary, managing partner of the legal firm, said that the exerpts of the movie which have been leaked on the internet show that the film has a maid named Shiney.
“Clearly naming the maid Shiney seems to be a quirky take on the infamous rape case of maid involving Shiney Ahuja. The trial court had convicted Shiney and he has challenged the conviction order before the Bombay High Court. The hearing of appeal is in progress before the Bombay High Court. In such a situation, producing a film using his name in a derogatory manner amounts to creating impediments in the free flow of administration of justice,” he added.
In 2011, Shiney was convicted for allegedly raping his maid at his home in 2009 and was sentenced to seven-and-a-half years term in jail....
