Sunil Grover who rose to fame with “The Kapil Sharma Show” is all set to hit the big screens on the 6th of January with his upcoming flick “Coffee with D”, in which he essays the character of Arnab Goswami. The trailer of the film was amazing and it reflected Grover’s unique side. Basically, the movie revolves around Arnab and his team trying hard to get an interview of famous underworld Don Dawood Ibrahim.
To avoid troubles, makers removed all references to Dawood Ibrahim. The concept is quite controversial but it mainly throws light on the hyper dramatic reporting style of Arnab.
In spite of playing safe, the film is surrounded by troubles, even before release. Producer Vinod Ramani and Director Vishal Mishra have received threatening calls from a man on the orders of Chhota Shakeel, a close aide of Dawood Ibrahim and they have approached the police for the same.
After registering the complaint, Ramani talked to the media and said;
“I have received 2-3 threat calls from a man who appears to be a close aide of some Chhota Shakeel. He asked me to remove some comedy scenes filmed on the Don and threatened to kill me and my family.”
While registering the complaint Ramani handed over voice recordings of those 2 separate calls that he received. In these recordings, a man is heard threatening the producer to either remove those scenes which portray Dawood negatively or dub the dialogues, so that it doesn’t offend the Don.
Ever since the trailer of the movie was out, there have been a lot of speculations about Zakir Hussain, who plays the role of Don D. This issue is very risky and can’t be taken lightly; we wonder how the producer would react because it’s the matter of his family’s life. They must take appropriate actions and get the matter sorted as soon as possible, otherwise it wouldn’t only risk personal things but will also impact the film’s business negatively.
How do you think should the makers sort out this? Do share your thoughts in our comments section below.
