Late actor Sridevi's husband Boney Kapoor has slammed a legal notice on the upcoming Priya Prakash Varrier-starrer Sridevi Bungalow.

The film, directed by Prasanth Mambully, released a teaser online that shows an actress' death in the bathtub that looks like a recreation of what the late actor Sridevi could have been through. As a consequence, the Kapoor has sent a legal notice to the filmmaker.

The director acknowledged that they have received a legal notice and told, “We received a legal notice from Mr Boney Kapoor last week and we will face it. My film is a suspense thriller. I told him (Boney Kapoor) that Sridevi is a common name. My character also happens to be an actress. We will face it.” The film is getting shot in London currently.

The director further said, “I cannot talk about the film. That is something you will know when the film is released. Sridevi is a character, an actress, in my film. The character’s name is Sridevi. Anybody can be called Sridevi. The story can have certain incidents which happened in Sridevi’s life. This is a suspense thriller. I can’t talk more about the film.”

Priya became an internet sensation in 2018 after her ‘wink’ went viral and became the subject of memes. The actor is set to make her Hindi film debut with Sridevi Bungalow.
