Bombay High Court Dismisses Legal Suit Against Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Gangubai Kathiawadi
Sanjay Leela Bhansali who is on the verge of completing his latest purported magnum opus Gangubai Kathiawadi breathed a  sigh of relief this week as the honourable court dismissed an injunction petition against the film.

The real Gangubai’s adopted son wanted the film to be stopped as he claimed it was defamatory to him. Gangubai Kathiawadi was in legal trouble after Babuji Shah, who claims to be Gangubai Kathiawadi’s adopted son, had filed a lawsuit seeking a permanent injunction restraining order against Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Gangubai Kathiawadi and author of Mafia Queens of Mumbai, Hussain Zaidi.

A source close to the project wonders how anyone can make claims about what the film contains without seeing a  single frame.

Says the source, “Bhansali has gone through this ordeal of having to explain his film’s content in the court with his earlier films. He now feels it is best to not make films based on real-life characters, as they invariably bring trouble on the table for its makers.  Best to stick to the fictional route.”

Another filmmaker known for his recent hard-hitting brilliant political dramas offers a simpler solution: “Make what you want about whom you want. Just add the  disclaimer  that it bears no resemblance  to  anyone dead  or living.”
