Shiney Ahuja has sent a legal notice to the Great Grand Masti‘s producers, director, Balaji Motion Pictures and Ekta Kapoor. Shiney Ahuja has filed a case against the film for naming a character after him. Shiney has asked the makers of the film to delete the scene
The notice, served by a Chandigarh-based legal firm, juncture constitutes, on behalf of Shiney Ahuja, points out that naming the maid Shiney amounts to Criminal Contempt as defined under Section 2(c) of the Contempt of Court Act 1971.
Neeraj Chaudhary, managing partner of the legal firm told The Indian Express, “Clearly naming the maid Shiney seems to be a quirky take on the infamous rape case of maid involving Shiney Ahuja. The trial court had convicted Shiney and he has challenged the conviction order before the Bombay High Court.”

Neeraj Chaudhary added, “The hearing of appeal is in progress before the Bombay High Court. In such a situation, producing a film ‘Great Grand Masti’ using his name in a derogatory manner amounts to creating impediments in the free flow of administration of justice”.

Reports also suggest that Vivek Oberoi, Aftab Shivdasani, and Riteish Deshmukh get funny with the maid Shiney (Sonali Raut) in one of the scenes from the film ‘Great Grand Masti’, which has apparently not gone well with Shiney Ahuja.
