Salman Khan’s ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ has landed itself in a fresh new controversy. Vikram Vashishtha, nephew of real life spy Late Ravindra Kaushik, has sent a legal notice to the production company asking for a special screening.
Vikram feels that the promos bear a striking resemblance to his uncle’s life and that’s the reason behind his demand of a screening.
Vikram in an interview said, “He (Ravindra Kaushik) was my maternal uncle who was with the Research Analysis Wing (RAW). Born on April 11, 1952 in Sriganganagar he also did his graduation from there. He displayed his talent at national level dramatic meet in Lucknow, which was also witnessed by some officials of the intelligence wing (RAW). He was contacted and offered job for the secret intelligence in Pakistan. Later he was sent to Pakistan for the purpose.”
“The promos reveal that the agent named `Tiger` worked in Pakistan and had an affair with a Pakistani girl. He fought for the country as well as for his love. Shashi Vashishtha, mother of my client Vikram is the Ravindra`s only sister. Thus, the family has full right to either go through the certified screenplay or watch it prior to national/ international release,” Vikram added.
