Sportsman to sue makers of 'Barfi!'?
The film, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra, is India's official entry at the Oscars next year. It has been directed by Anurag Basu.
Majid Youusf Dar, a sports manager and son of Kashmir's football star Mohammad Yousuf, was apparently shown among the bank robbers in the movie.
"My client (Majid Youusf Dar) has been portrayed as a bank robber in the movie without his consent," Dar's lawyer Abid Banday said, adding they were planning to send a legal notice to the producers.
"He is not an ordinary person... he is a sports icon of the valley," the lawyer said.
Director Basu has already been criticised for allegedly copying scenes from other Hollywood movies in the film.
