Tamil actor and superstar Rajnikanth has been sent a letter from Sunder Shekhar, foster son of gangster Haji Mastan, warning him not to distort facts about Mastan’s life in an upcoming movie.
Shekhar, Chairman of the Bharatiya Minorities Surakasha Mahasangh, has threatened the actor, in a video that has gone viral, of consequences if Mastan is portrayed wrongly.
Rajnikanth will be playing Mastan in a movie based on his life and times. The movie is tentatively titled ‘Godfather’.
“The movie must be real account of Haji’s story and not a fabricated one. If there is any objectionable element in the movie, members of my party and I will not spare Rajnikant,” said Shekhar in the video.
“You are depicting my godfather and a well known national political leader as a smuggler and underworld don, which are highly unacceptable, and I strongly oppose such misrepresentation of my godfather,” Shekhar has stated in a letter to Rajnikanth.
In the past, the film ‘Once upon a time in Mumbai’ was based on Haji Mastan’s life.
