Mumbai: Ram Gopal Varma’s latest film Rann, starring Amitabh Bachchan, has yet to hit the screen. But a three-star rating given to it by ETC Network, a music channel, has upset the film-maker who has issued a legal notice. The film producer’s lawyer Ameet Naik on Thursday sent a notice to the channel alleging “malpractice’’ for giving the film a rating of three out of ten. The producer wants the channel to refrain from rating it as “poor’’ before the release. The producer is seeking damages to the tune of Rs 25 crore. Anurag Bedi, head of ETC, was not aware of the notice and said he would discuss it with his legal team.
