After facing the wrath of many for allegedly bullying the late actor, Karan Johar, Salman Khan, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Ekta Kapoor have legal trouble knocking on their door as well.

According to ANI, eight members of the Bollywood fraternity were sued by advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha under Sections 306 (abetment of suicide), 109 (punishment of abetment if the act abetted is committed in consequence and where no express provision is made for its punishment), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) and 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation).
