Rifelman lands in legal trouble
Rifleman producer Abundantia Entertainment has reportedly given a legal notice to team of 72 Hours: Martyr Who Never Died, stating they could not release the film as Abundantia Entertainment had the exclusive rights to make a film based on Rawat’s life.
Dhyani, however, said: “We are not going to step back from this issue. I have been working in this industry since last 15 years. If they (Abundantia Entertainment) think that we are going to succumb under their pressure then it’s their biggest misunderstanding.”
He also slammed Sushant for not verifying the legal aspect before coming on-board for the film.
