The notice states that Susairaj is worried Not A Love Story is based on her life and will present her in a bad light. The notice further stated that if the filmmaker refused to obey then she would be forced to file a case against him and ask for a stay order on the film's release.
The ace director confirmed that he has received a notice from Susairaj's lawyer, Shaikh M Sharif. However, RGV is irked that Susairaj didn't approach him directly. He told that his lawyer will reply to the notice. “But I will not show her the film. She could have asked me directly. I would have shown it to her. I am not going to do it after being threatened like this," he said Mid Day.
Varma is not worried about the notice or stay order because he has always maintained that the movie is not based on Susairaj's life, rather it is only inspired by Grover's murder case. On the other hand, Susairaj's lawyer Sharif maintained that the court will force RGV to show her the film. The lawyer further told that they just want to check if there is any objectionable portion in the film that may affect Susairaj life.
Not A Love Story, starring Deepak Dobriyal and Mahie Gill is scheduled to be released on August 19.
Maria Susairaj, convicted for the destruction of evidences in the 2008 Neeraj Grover murder case, has served a notice of filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma asking to see his upcoming Not A Love Story, that she fears shows her in bad light, before its release.
