Ekata Kapoor has released Ragini MMS in a morning show in one theater on May 12, following her astrologers’ advice. Friday the 13th will be the real midnight premiere.
The real Ragini in the movie, Deepika, insisted to be shown the film before the release. But, Ekata had refused and Deepika went as far as threatening a legal action. Eakta in her interview on May 5 even said that she’d reveal the identity of the real Ragini if required.
The movie is based on a 22-year-old Delhi girl, whose MMS scandal had inspired movie. It is told that she is feeling uncomfortable by the details on her life.
Ekata said, "But now both she and her mother are afraid that the sex scenes in the film will come to be associated with her. Deepika can’t sue me because I’ve never said that Ragini MMS is completely based on her life. I’ve only said that it’s based on a true incident around which we’ve fabricated a film."
