Major stakeholders like Sandeep Singh, Vinod Bhanushali, 70MM Talkies, Penguin India, and the author, Ullekh Np, find themselves entangled in a web of contentious issues related to the film’s production.

The biopic, which was adapted from Ullekh Np’s acclaimed book, the biopic now faces allegations of profit sharing disputes.

Although acknowledging the legal dispute, the author has maintained a discreet stance on the matter and refrained from any comments due to the subjudicious nature of the matter.
