BH CORRESPONDENT, Kolkata: Bollywood filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, Bengali director Agnidev Chatterjee and two other Bangladeshi makers have been served a legal notice by the Abinta Kabir Foundation of Bangladesh. The foundation is named after one of the victims of the Holey Artisan Bakery terror attack, Abinta Kabir.
Bhatt and the others were shooting a film on the terror attack on Dhaka’s Holey Artisan Bakery in 2016 that killed 29 persons, including foreigners. The foundation has served the notice to the filmmakers for not taking its permission before work on the movie.
Abinta Kabir, a nineteen year old girl, died in the Holy Artisan terror attack. Her mother Ruba Ahmed later formed the Abinta Kabir Foundation that helps poor students.
Bhatt, Chatterjee and Bangladeshi filmmaker Mostafa Sarowar have been named in the notice. Bollywood actress Gul Panag, who was acting in the film, has also been served a legal notice.
It is learnt that Bhatt wanted to feature Abanti’s family in the movie. Her mother had turned down the request.
