We`re going ahead with Prakash Jaju biopic: Merchant
Mumbai: Undaunted by Priyanka Chopra`s legal notice forbidding the biopic `67 Days`, based on the actress` former secretary Prakash Jaju, the proposed film`s makers are determined to go right ahead with the project.
Aseem Merchant, whose production company Limelight Motion Pictures Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. will produce the film, says he has no intention of backing out under legal duress.
"We don`t succumb to such pressure tactics. We are going ahead with the project. We`ve replied to her legal notice," said Merchant.
Prakash Jaju, whose account will be the crux of the film, said: "I`ve sold the rights of my biopic to Limelight, a company that`s represented by Aseem Merchant and filmmaker Vikram Razdan. They say they`re going ahead with the project."
Beyond that, Jaju is tight-lipped as he has been asked by Aseem Merchant not to speak.
Priyanka had an infamous fallout with her former secretary Prakash Jaju over finances.
