The real-life ‘Ragini’ threatens legal action
Delhi-based Deepika, whose real life story inspired Ekta Kapoor's upcoming film ‘Ragini MMS’ said that if the film is not shown to her prior to its release, she will take legal action against the producer.
"I want to see the film. I have spoken to Ekta about it. She doesn't want to show it to me, I don't know why?" the 22-year-old said. "I met people at Balaji office and the only answer I get is that the movie is not ready. How is it possible? The movie is releasing in one week. If I'm not shown the film before release, I will take legal action," she added.
Deepika, who was shown the script of the film before it was filmed, said she wants to see whether she has been portrayed in the right light or not.
"When the film was being made, I was shown the script and I did read it. I have no problem with the script. But there is a lot of difference between reading the script and interpreting that on the screen. I want to see how they have portrayed my character. Because if there is something bad, then my image will be ruined," said the Delhi girl.
‘Ragini MMS’, which is produced by Ekta and directed by Pawan Kripalani, is slated to hit the screens in a few days. It is about a couple who go for an adventurous weekend and get filmed by 24 cameras amid some paranormal activity.
Ekta has maintained that only 30 percent of the film is based from Deepika's incident and the rest is pure imagination. According to Deepika, she was offered money as compensation for her story but she refused. "Ekta asked me if I want to be paid. But I refused. I told her that I don't want anything because it's a story on my life," she said.
In the real life incident, Dipika said, her boyfriend secretly filmed both of them involved in intimate physical contact.
