Mumbai “Terribly hurt” by the programme “Sonsunny” mimicking the Deol family, Bollywood actor Sunny Deol has sent a legal notice to Big FM radio channel asking them to withdraw the show or face defamation suit for a compensation of Rs 200 crore damages.

“I and my family are terribly hurt….we have tolerated the programme for long but there is a limit to how much one can take,” Sunny told a press conference here on Tuesday.

The legal notice, served on the respondent last Saturday, has asked them to withdraw the show forthwith or else the Deol family would consider filing civil as well as criminal defamation cases.

“We will wait for a week and let us see how they react…if need arises, we won’t hesitate to file a criminal case along with civil suit for damages,” said Ashok Sarogi, Sunny’s lawyer.

Alleging the show was not in good humour, the actor said “things have gone out of hand. Deol family is being defamed.

My blood boils. It hurts. Please understand our anguish.”

“You know our family and my father particularly. We have always been upright and never harmed anyone in the society.

You are also aware about our family’s contribution to the society. After all, there is a limit to making fun of people,” the actor said.

“Mimicry is fine but in this programme, Sunny’s name has been dragged and an impression is sought to be conveyed that he himself is participating in the show. This is really cheap,” said advocate Sarogi.

The actor said “I am not against mimicry but when it becomes cheap, it is bad. I can’t even hear the programme. It provokes me. I get upset. After all, we are all human beings”.

Asked if he could not use his famous “dhai kilo ka hath” (muscled hand) to resolve the issue, the actor said “if you are a public figure then you have to remain in control”.
