Yash Raj Films gets a legal notice from Ajay Devgn

Ajay Devgn proved to be a completely professional man by sending a legal notice to Yash Raj Films. It is breaking news, almost literally as it has sent shock waves amongst many in Bollywood. It was totally unexpected considering the sad demise of the grand old man of Indian romantic cinema, Yash Chopra.
According to an insider, the notice was sent on October 18, only three days before Yash Chopra breathed his last. The notice was sent to the son of Yash, Aditya Chopra. The notice is regarding the respective films Son of Sardar and Jab Tak Hai Jaan.
According to Ajay Devgn the YRF has exercised their power in the industry to put pressure on the exhibitors. With this they wanted to give preference to their film ahead of Son of Sardar.
There was a general trend in the industry that Ajay Devgn, as a respect, would not release the film on the same date that Jab Tak Hai Jaan is releasing. Both films are set to release on November 13 – the all important day of Diwali.
As far as the YRF is concerned, they have said that they haven’t received any such notice as yet and will take appropriate action if required.
