Priyanka Chopra And Aseem Merchant In A Legal Battle

priyanka chopra mainPriyanka Chopra has been in the headlines regarding a biopic that her ex-boyfriend, Aseem Merchant is planning to make.

Now Priyanka Chopra has been miffed with this and has sent Aseem Merchant, a legal notice in a bid to stop him from making a biopic on her former manager Prakash Jaju, but it looks like Aseem is in no mood to let go. In her notice, she has also stated that the publicity material of the film should be withdrawn and no personal or confidential information about her or her family should be mentioned.

“We are going ahead with the project and we do not want to succumb to any pressure tactics. We have already replied to her notice.” is what Aseem Merchant‘s stand is.

Aseem is very clear that he is not seeking anyone else’s approval for the project and said, “We have bought the rights of Prakash Jaju’s biopic. So no, I am not showing the film’s script to anyone.”

Lawyer Alankar Kripkekar, says that Aseem Merchant is going ahead with his plans of making a biopic on Prakash Jaju who was Priyanka Chopra‘s former business manager.

“I can only say that we have the rights to Jaju’s biopic, sixty seven days, and we are going ahead with the project. Withdrawing publicity material of the film is simply not true. The film is in its nascent stage right now, as we have not yet written the script of the film. As for defamation, why would we want to defame anyone? It is Prakash Jaju’s story and we are going to stick to it.” states Alankar Kripkekar.

If ever this film gets made then the biopic on Prakash Jaju dwells heavily on Priyanka Chopra‘s personal and professional life.
