Looks like another filmmaker is in trouble for being too creative while promoting his film. Filmmaker Sanjay Gupta sent out invites to the launch of his film, Shootout At Wadala, in the form of a court summons in the hands of couriers dressed as policemen. Although the event went smoothly, the invite  (below) hasn’t gone well with the Mumbai Police who have reportedly filed a case against the producer-director.

But Sanjay hasn’t let this get to him. “I am not aware of this (case). As far as we are concerned, it was nothing more than an innovative and creative marketing thing. It was an invitation sent only to the media and not to any public. In any case, the summons-style invitation has a disclaimer stating that this is not a real summons and is purely for publicity and promotional purposes!” he said.

Shootout At Wadala is the prequel to Shootout At Lokhandwala and stars John Abraham as Manya Surve, Sonu Sood as Dawood Ibrahim and Manoj Bajpayee as Dawood’s brother, Shabbir. It also stars Anil Kapoor and Kangana Ranaut.

Note: As per the direction of the Hon’ble  Bombay High Court, the invitation has been removed.
