Makers of the movie Rang Rasiya have received a legal notice alleging that Raja Ravi Verma, on whom the film is based, is portrayed in an 'erotic' and 'playboy' manner.
Directed by Ketan Mehta, the movie Rang Rasiya is based on Ranjit Desai's novel titled 'Raja Ravi Verma' and now grand-daughter of the legendary painter has sent a legal notice to the makers of the film.
It has been alleged that Raja Ravi Verma has been portrayed in an inappropriate manner, lowering the moral and intellectual character of the painter.
On the other hand, director of the film Rang Rasiya asserted that the film is made according to the novel which was based on the painter and he feels that the legendary painter should get recognition for being the pioneer of Indian art. Also, the director raised fingers on the intention of the complainant for sending the legal notice just on the eve of the film's release.
The movie Rang Rasiya starring Randeep Hooda and Nandana Sen will release on November 7th.
