Prakash Jha's Chakravyuh is in the news yet again. This time round, it's regarding the song 'Mehngaai' that revolves around the political and economic situation of the country and also has mentions of many industrialists of the country. Taking objection to this, a legal firm (on behalf of M/s. Birla Brothers Pvt. Ltd) has sent a legal notice, dated October 3, to the makers of Chakravyuh raising objection to the following lines from the song 'Birla ho ya Tata, Ambani ho ya Bata, sabne apne chakkar mein desh to hai kaata'. The notice has been sent to Prakash Jha (Chakravyuh's director), producer Sunil Lulla, songwriter A. M. Turaz, the song composer Vijay Verma and its singer Kailash Kher.
The said notice states that the Birlas "take pride, and justifiably so, in having built an impeccable reputation on the foundations of fairness, equality and sustained commitment to the development of society and the country". It also states that the Birla group "has a history spanning 150 years of dedicated service and contribution to the well-being of the nation through social and charitable endeavours".
The notice also wants the filmmakers to remove the 'objectionable portions' of the song within 48 hours along with publishing an unconditional apology in the media.
Chakravyuh releases on October 24.
