'Gabbar Is Back' makers get legal notice from IMA

Friday, May 15, 2015

A few days ago we had reported that Indian Medical Association (IMA) is very upset with the makers of ‘Gabbar Is Back’ for portraying medical practitioners in a bad light and had demanded the removal of objectionable scenes from the movie. Since the makers didn’t pay any heed to their request, the IMA has now sent a legal notice to them. The notice has been sent to the film’s main lead Akshay Kumar and producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

In one of the scenes of ‘Gabbar’, a few doctors are shown treating a dead man to make money and this has not gone down well with the members of the medical fraternity. They feel that the sequence has ‘lowered the dignity of the medical profession and has also provoked the public at large against the noble profession’.

IMA’s National President Prof. A. Marthanda Pillai, President-elect Dr. S.S. Aggarwal and Hon. Secretary General Dr. K.K. Aggarwal in a joint statement noted that the director, producer and actor are under the obligation and responsible so that no scene from the movie incites commission of any offence. They have demanded a written apology from the makers in national dailies and Rs.5 crore as compensation.
