Alleged gangster's son sues Luthria film
The adopted son of alleged gangster Haji Mastan Mirza, on whom the film is reportedly based, wants to prevent it being released because he fears his father's reputation will be damaged.
"As per the defendants, the movie is based on the life of anti-social elements like Dawwod Ibrahim and late Matsan. But, Haji Mastan was working for the poor people, to whom he was like a godfather and his work has benefited many families," Real Bollywood reports the lawsuit as stating.
Mirza has also allegedly claimed that his father was never convicted in any criminal cases and therefore should not be depicted as a gangster.
Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai, which stars Ajay Devgn, Kangana Ranaut, Emraan Hashmi and Prachi Desai, is due for release on July 30.
