As we all know, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is all set to make her comeback on screen with Sanjay Gupta‘s Jazbaa. And the gorgeous actress has an array of other interesting projects in her kitty. One of those happen to be Omung Kumar‘s biopic on Sarabjit Singh. After the success of his previous movie based on Mary Kom‘s life, the filmmaker is rather keen on translating this heart-wrenching journey on celluloid. But sadly, this venture is now in trouble.

For those who don’t know, Sarabjit Singh was an Indian national convicted of terrorism and spying by a Pakistani court. He was condemned and sentenced to death in 1991, but the sentence was repeatedly postponed by the Government of Pakistan. However, there was no concrete evidence to prove him guilty. Despite the repeated efforts of the Indian government, several rallies and petitions, mercy release wasn’t granted to him. In June 2012, superstar Salman Khan had come out in favour of his release. He had an online petition from his NGO Being Human in support of Singh’s release. In April 2013, he was attacked brutally by a few fellow inmates and died six days later.

Omung had taken the permission of Sarabjit Singh’s sister, Dalbir Kaur while scripting the film. And Ash had been chosen to play her character in it. After initial reluctance, an emotional Dalbir had said that though it will be difficult for her to go through the traumatic experience, she wanted this story to be told. However, according to a report on Zoom channel, Sarabjit’s alleged sister Baljinder Singh has sent a legal notice to Omung and Aishwarya. Apparently, that’s because she feels the biopic might not show her brother in good light. Now, we can’t help but wonder whether this film will see the light of the day or not!
