Boney Kapoor has initiated legal action against producers of a film titledÂ Sridevi BungalowÂ which features internet sensation Priya Varrier in lead role.
The teaser of the film was released on Tuesday and it seems to be exploring and recreating the life of iconic Bollywood star Sridevi, albeit in a distasteful way. In the teaser, we see Priya playing an actress named Sridevi who leads a successful but lonely life. The end of the teaser has a shot of a bathtub with a womanâ€™s legs hanging out which looks like a cheap shot since the iconic actor passed away in 2018 by accidentally drowning in a bathtub.
The Indian Express has reported that late Srideviâ€™s husband Boney Kapoor has slammed a legal notice on the film for obvious reasons. “We received a legal notice from Mr. Boney Kapoor last week and we will face it. My film is a suspense thriller. I told him (Boney Kapoor) that Sridevi is a common name,” Director Prasanth Mampully told the India press. “My character also happens to be an actress. We will face it,â€ he added.
The shooting of the film is still underway in London. Check out the teaser here and tell us what you think:
