Shruti Hassan, who played the role of a Karachi call girl in the controversial film D-day directed by Nikhil Advani has stated that she is contemplating legal action. This decision of Ms. Hassan came into the public domain through an official press release by her in which she stated that the dubbing of D-day into Tamil as Dawood constitutes a clear breach of contract as it was done without her consent or approval. She has also disassociated herself from the Tamil version of the movie. While the producers usually retain dubbing rights in a movie in accordance with industry practices, it remains to be seen whether Ms. Hassan’s contract required her consent to be taken before dubbing the film into another language. The industry’s take on this issue can be seen here.
