The Bollywood director and writer Vishal Mishra have gone to police after receiving threatening calls. He is making a film about Indian Crime Don Dawood Ebrahim. The whole team of the movie is getting threats from unknown numbers. Coffee with D is about a journalist’s effort to do an interview with Ebrahim. Director Vishal Mishra and producer Vinod Rahani claimed that people are calling them every day. This series started since December 14 from various numbers and locations, requiring that the movie shows Ebrahim in a good light. “The Trailer of the Film launched on December 14, 2016, in Mumbai. Since then, we are receiving threat calls from internet numbers,” Mishra said.

Mishra also declared that the movie’s whole team assumed warnings. That’s why they shifted from Mumbai to Delhi and lodged a complaint at the Parliament Street police station. Rahani said he took the first call on December 26, 2016. According to Rahani, “The first time when I was in Nagpur on December 26, I received a call was from one Nayeem, 2016. The caller warned me to remove parts of the film which represent underworld don Dawood Ebrahim in a bad light and do fun of him.”
“Nayeem also informed me that he was calling on account of Chhota Shakeel [Ebrahim’s aide]. And warned to kill the whole families of the film crew if I fail to comply with his requirements.” The Additional Deputy Commissioner Police, R.P. Meena, said: “We have not recorded an FIR in this connection on their accusations. Their complaint is going to review for further course of an investigation if needed.”
The movie stars comedian Sunil Grover in the role of the TV journalist. Last month, Grover penned an open letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, asking him to catch Ebrahim. And also to facilitate the process of his trial for his involvement in the 1993 Mumbai blasts.
