MUMBAI: The upcoming movie Mission Mangal” starring Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan, is in controversy as women director Radha Bharadwaj on Wednesday filed a suit seeking a stay on the production and release of the movie.
Earlier this month, actor Akshay Kumar had announced that he was jointly producing with Fox Star Studios and Cape of Good Films a movie titled “Mission Mangal” on the Mars mission. According to the suit, Bharadwaj had given her screenplay to producer Atul Kasbekar in 2016. Kasbekar’s company signed a non-disclosure agreement that prohibited them from disclosing Bharadwaj’s project to anyone without her prior written consent. The suit is likely to come up for hearing in the due course of time.
