The fact that the movie could be based on a real life spy makes it even more interesting. But it could mean, godforbid, a DELAY?!!! I am already so psyched about this movie and have been for a long time that the thought of having to wait is killing me!! Maybe I should relax. After watching Bollywood movies for seven years now I should know better. There has been always SOMETHING jeopardizing a major movie release. .. I can understand the family members wanting to read the script or see the movie first, but hey, even if it should be modeled after Ravindra Kaushik, they could object to ANYTHING and they could be also CLUELESS… when family members claim to know specifics about an XYZ famous relative, it usually turns out they know NOTHING! I know fathers who have been in wars, they never ever talk about those experiences! I know soldiers who worked on special missions. Even the family members know better than asking questions!! So, dear Kaushiks, get over it. Let the movie talk… :-)
Salman Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger has landed in trouble. The nephew of real life spy Late Ravindra Kaushik, sent a legal notice to the producers of the movie saying that he wants to see the film before release, as according to him Salman’s character has a striking resemblance with Ravindra Kaushik…..Talking to a leading daily Vikram Vashishtha, nephew of Late Ravindra Kaushik said, “He (Ravindra Kaushik) was my maternal uncle who was with the Research Analysis Wing (RAW). Born on April 11, 1952 in Sriganganagar, he also did his graduation from there. He displayed his talent at national level dramatic meet in Lucknow, which was also witnessed by some officials of the intelligence wing (RAW). He was contacted and offered job for the secret intelligence in Pakistan
Later he was sent to Pakistan for the purpose.”
The promos of Ek Tha Tiger bear striking resemblance to Kaushik’s experiences in Pakistan and, therefore his family has sought legal help to have a look at the original script or view the film before it releases.
