Mumbai, June 13 (IANS) After a notice is being sent to Vikram Bhatt’s production by a biscuit brand for allegedly defaming its image in his ready to release movie “Ankur Arora Murder Case”, actor Salim Diwan has come to the filmmaker’s defence.
A medical thriller, the film’s trailer shows that a child dies on the operation table because he ate the biscuit just before the surgery.
The actor, who plays a doctor in the film, says they did not do it intentionally and had no intention of hurting anybody’s sentiments.
“They have just seen the small clip that comes in the trailer and that’s why they thought that the child in the film dies because of eating biscuit. But its not that,” Salim said here Wednesday during the promotion of the film.
Directed by Suhail Tatari, “Ankur Arora Murder Case” highlights the disturbing issue of deaths due to medical negligence. The film releases June 14.
Salim hails from a doctor’s family in Jaipur and runs alcohol de-addiction centres.
“Actually he dies because of eating before operation. If he would have eaten daal-rice before operation, he would have died then also. There was no intention of the director or producer or ours to hurt the setiments of anyone or the company,” he added.
Salim said now the packaging of the brand will be blurred in the film.
“As far as I know the packaging and the branding of that biscuit will be blurred in the film,” he said.
The film also features Kay Kay Menon, Tisca Chopra, Paoli Dam and Vishakha Singh in key roles.
