Journalist-turned-filmmaker Amitabh Parashar has sent a legal notice to T-series accusing the production house of stealing the idea of his script for its new film “Khandaani Shafakhana”, starring Sonakshi Sinha and Anu Kapoor.
In his legal notice, Parashar has mentioned that he got in touch with T-series last year regarding his idea of a film based on roadside sex shops and mailed a soft copy of the script to which he received an acknowledgement too.

However, Bhushan Kumar of T-series told PTI “It’s totally false as what film we are making is totally different. No similarity at all. I don’t know how and why, without knowing our film, he is claiming that.”
According to Parashar, he developed the idea of a comedy film, titled “Bhag Mohabbat”, which revolves around the world of street sex doctors, following his feature length documentary “Death of a Sex Doctor” which he had made after extensive, four-year research on roadside sex shops.
According to Parashar, he met T-series’ Mukesh Desai to discuss the subject and was sent to meet Anjali Bhushan of the same company and narrated the story in brief to her too. After the meeting, Parashar hoped to direct the film on his story and had pitched the name of Ayushmann Khuranna for it.
