MUMBAI: Sanjay Dutt is planning to take legal action against his unauthorized biography's writer and publisher, Yasser Usman. The book titled, 'The Crazy Untold Story of Bollywood’s Bad Boy' has not been authorized by the actor who says that his ‘authentic’ autobiography will be out shortly.

The publisher, in response has claimed to not publish any of the biography's extracts on short-form media.  Dutt issued a statement on social media about Usman and the publishing company, Juggernaut.

“I have not authorised either Juggernaut Publications or Yasser Usman to write/publish my biography. Our lawyers had sent them a legal notice, in response to which Juggernaut Publications said that contents of the proposed book are based on information available in public domain from authentic sources.

“However, from the excerpts that are appearing in the newspaper are partly based on my old interviews, but rest all seemed to be based on hearsay, 1990s’ tabloids and gossip magazines, most of which are figments of imagination and not true. I have consulted with my legal team on the next course of action,” the statement read.

He also added another post which spoke of his real biography, “I hope better sense will prevail and there will be no further excerpts that will hurt me or my family. My official autobiography will be out soon which will be authentic and based on facts."

'The Crazy Untold Story of Bollywood’s Bad Boy' follows the 58 year old actor's life, starting with his parents all the way down to Dutt's drug addictions.
