Susairaj sends notice to Ram Gopal Varma

MUMBAI: In a notice through a Court, Maria Susairaj has asked Ram Gopal Varma to show her his soon-to-be released film, Not A Love Story, before releasing it.

Susairaj suspects that the film will portray her in bad light.

Not A Love Story is said to be inspired by the Neeraj Grover murder case in which Susairaj was one of the two prime accused. The former Kannada actress‘s lawyer in a statement has said that the film is based on his client and if that is true, her consent needs to be taken.

"We have asked him to show the film before the release. If he does not, we will file a suit and the court will decide whether the movie can be released or not," said Susairaj ‘s lawyer Sherif Sheikh.
Meanwhile, Varma has refused to show the movie."I will not show my film to Maria as I have repeatedly said that my film is just inspired by the incident and not completely based on her. There are so many differences in the film from the real life incident," Varma said.

"My heroine is not a South Indian actress and her fiancee is not in Navy as in real case. Also, the film is just an interpretation of what could have happened and not a reporting on what actually happened.No one was there to know what the reality is. This is not her story and I am not showing the film to her," he added.

Starring Mahie Gill, Deepak Dobriyal and Ajay Gehi in stellar roles, the film is scheduled to release on 19 August.
