In relief to producers of the film Gangubai Kathiawadiand actress Alia Bhatt, the Bombay High Court recently stayed the summons issued by a Magistrate Court in a criminal defamation complaint filed against them.

The Metropolitan Magistrate at Mazgaon, Mumbai had issued the summons in the defamation complaint filed by one Babuji Shah who claims to be the adopted son of Gangubai Kathiawadi.

He claimed that the chapters on Kathiawadi in the novel The Mafia Queens of Mumbai (on which the film is based) were defamatory, tarnished her reputation, and infringed upon her right to privacy.
