The above-mentioned rescuers asserted that the reason for serving the legal notice pertains to a “wrong” sequence in the movie, where it is shown, that they charged money from 722 Indians in lieu of transporting them to Dubai.
The makers of the film have tarnished the reputation of the shipping company hence they are liable for paying Rs 300 crore in compensation, read the legal notice.
To corroborate their claim of rescuing the victims without accruing monetary benefits, the plaintiff showed a ‘letter of Appreciation’ issued to them by the Union Ministry of External Affairs.
The plaintiff has demanded apologies from the lead cast as well as the makers of ‘Airlift’. (UNI)
