While the family members of the real-life spy late Ravindra Kaushik served a legal notice to Yash Raj Films and asked for a screening of Ek Tha Tiger, since they feel there is a striking resemblance between Salman Khan’s character and Kaushik’s real experiences in Pakistan, YRF has decided not to screen the film for them!
Yash Raj Films (YRF) has decided not to screen Salman Khan-starrer Ek Tha Tiger for deceased RAW agent Ravindra Kaushik's family, who has sent the filmmakers a legal notice asking for a screening of the film.
The production house and director Kabir Khan have decided to keep the film and its content away from public domain.
"I read about him in the papers. This is the first time I've heard of him. It's an interesting story. But it's not the story of my film," said Kabir Khan.
The director didn't say more regarding the issue, but according to a source, the film takes Salman on a completely different route from Kaushik's story.
"Kaushik was caught and jailed in Pakistan. He died in prison across there. Salman's character comes to an entirely different end. That's why the film is called 'Ek Tha Tiger'. He is like an unsolved mystery," said the source.
