Mumbai: Walkwater Media, the makers of Bollywood spoof `Tere Bin Laden` have received an anonymous letter that threatens them with dire consequences if they release the film.

"The person who addressed the letter to us has got the theme of the film `Tere Bin Laden` all wrong. It doesn’t deal with terrorism least of all support it. It’s a light comedy," said a source from the production house that remains unfazed by the threat.

The source also informed that the letter stated that the producers shouldn’t release the film since it was in support of Osama Bin Laden and terrorism.

A tongue-in-cheek comedy, the movie is about a reporter from Pakistan who is desperate to migrate to the US in pursuit of the American dream. His repeated attempts to migrate are shot down as his visa is always rejected. But when things couldn’t look worse, he comes across an Osama bin Laden look alike.

Directed by debutant Abhishek Sharma, it stars Ali Zafar.
