Gaurang Doshi receives Contempt Of Court notice by Bombay Hc for launching and promoting Aankhen 2

8 September 2016 10:07 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

The recent times are not seemingly right for the filmmaker Gaurang Doshi. Only a few days back, he made news by claiming that 'Ileana D'Cruz had agreed to be a part of Aankhen 2', something that Ileana D'Cruz had strongly denied. Ileana D'Cruz even threatened to take legal action for announcing her name as part of the film's cast. The latest update is that, Gaurang Doshi has been served with the Contempt Of Court notice by the Bombay Hc for launching & promoting Aankhen 2. The said contempt petition has been filed by Rajtaru Studios. Readers may recall that, a few months earlier, Tarun Agarwal of Rajtaru Studios Limited had questioned as to how Gaurang Doshi can make Aankhen 2 when they had acquired the rights of the film Aankhen from him years back and along with that, they also had the rights to make its sequel.
