• Sanjay Dutt slams Yasser Usman for his unauthorised biography

    21st March 2018

    Sanjay Dutt recently expressed his disapproval and anger for journalist-author Yasser Usman for impermissibly wanting to publish an upcoming biography on himself without his consent or legal authorization. Dutt angrily tweeted on Tuesday and stated that he will be taking legal action against Usman and Juggernaut Books for publishing stories that could hurt him and his family. He also promised to release his own, official autobiography soon.

    A Statement from Dutt's tweet read, ''I have not authorized either Juggernaut Publications or Yaseer Usman to write/publish my biography. Our lawyers had sent them a legal notice, in response to which Juggernaut Publications said that contents of the proposed book are based on information available in public domain from authentic sources."

    The statement continued saying "However from the excerpts that are appearing in the newspaper are partly based on my old interviews but rest all seemed to be based on hearsay, 1990s tabloids and gossip magazines, most of which are figments of imagination and not true. I have consulted with my legal team on the next course of action. I hope better sense will prevail and there will be no further excerpts that will hurt me or my family. My official autobiography will be out soon which will be authentic and based on facts."

    Juggernaut Books the publication that was going to publish Dutt's unofficial biography expressed apologizes on Twitter with their post reads, ''We are sorry to hear that Mr Sanjay Dutt was upset by our book on him. The author, @yasser_aks, an award-winning journalist and reputed writer on Bollywood actors, is a fan and very sympathetic to Mr Dutt. Yasser has chosen his sources.''
