Kabir Khan’s Saif Ali Khan-starrer Phantom is in yet another controversy. International medical organisation Aid charity Medecins sans Frontieres (MSF) says it is taking legal action over the film for it claims could endanger its staff in conflict zones.
According to MSF, Phantom depicts an aid worker of a ‘confusingly similar’ fictitious organisation using a weapon, which its employees would never do. The organisation says that the film could harm its work in places where its access depends on a reputation for neutrality.
Phantom is about an Indian soldier, played by Saif Ali Khan, pursuing Pakistani militants, who are alleged to have planned the 2008 terror attacks on Mumbai. An aid worker, played by Katrina Kaif, helps him in his mission. Apparently, her character works for a charity named Medicine International.
