The film in fact opens with a sequence showing a hit-and-run incident whose details seem uncannily similar to the Pereira case.
Understandably, the film's director Subhash Kapoor is wary of admitting to real-life resemblances lest the film gets slapped with more litigation alleging the film to be anti-judiciary.
Says Kapoor cautiously, "It is based on a few real-life hit-and-run cases."
About the legal notices that the film satirizing the judicial system has received, Subhash Kapoor says, "The legal department is working on it. The Delhi High Court refused to 'stay' the film's release. Hopefully that takes care of the matter."
