Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt's latest film Zilla Ghaziabad, which is based on the life of notorious policeman Pritam Singh of Bulandshahr, has run into trouble with the fans and family of the slain cop demanding to know every detail of the role. Sources said that Pritam's brother also wants to know how his brother is portrayed in the film.
“Though notorious for using unlawful methods to nab criminals, Pritam Singh is a legend in his region even 13 years after his death. No one wants his story to be twisted or distorted. There is a fear among his supporters and followers in Uttar Pradesh that he may be portrayed as a law-breaker," Mid Day quoted a source as saying.
Confirming the latest developments, producer Vinod Bachchan said, “Yes, there have been anxious inquiries about the way we're portraying Pritam Singh. His brother S P Singh wants to know how his brother is being portrayed in our film, and also Dutt Saab's approach towards the role. He doesn't want Pritam Singh to come across as an anti-social character."
It is said that Sanjay Dutt would soon meet S P Singh to sort out the issue. S P Singh is also likely to be roped in as the creative consultant of the film to avoid any unnecessary disturbances at the time of its release.
