|Priyanka Chopra has initiated legal action to thwart a film being produced by her ex-flame Aseem Merchant. The movie will apparently narrate the story of her heydays as an actress.
Though the makers have stated that the film is actually a biopic of Priyanka Chopra’s former manager Prakash Jaju, it was nothing but obvious that Priyanka will remain an integral part of the movie.
Realizing that the film will indeed revolve around her personal and professional life, Priyanka has sent a copy of the notice to Aseem Merchant as well as Prakash Jaju.

As a tabloid reports, the notice, sent by Priyanka's lawyer states: “Our client is shocked to note that while all the news articles mention the proposed film as your (Jaju's) biopic, the promotions largely refer to our client and inclusion of aspects of her and her family life rather than references to you. You are intending to collude with Mr Merchant in violation of our client's rights, including right to privacy, defaming our client and lowering her reputation, seeking to subject her to hatred and ridicule.
Our client calls upon you to withdraw all the publicity material of the film with immediate effect, desist using or referring to any personal or confidential information about her and/or her family, desist from producing, releasing the proposed film and tender an unconditional apology to her."
Prakash Jaju hogged the news headlines in 2008 when he had a falling out with the actress due to non-clearance of dues. The matter was handled well by Priyanka’s father late Dr Ashok Chopra. According to Jaju, the actress owed him a huge amount of money and refused to clear the dues. The situation worsened when Jaju allegedly started interfering in Priyanka's personal life. This led to her father filing an FIR against Jaju.
Aseem Merchant, however, is hopeful that once Priyanka reads the script she will be fine with the idea of the movie. Now, the ball is in Priyanka’s court, if the actress gives it a nod then the film might start rolling.
