Delhi-based Deepika, whose real life story inspired Ekta Kapoor's upcoming film "Ragini MMS", Friday said that if the film is not shown to her prior to its release, she will take legal action against the producer.

"I want to see the film. I have spoken to Ekta about it. She doesn't want to show it to me, I don't know why?" the 22-year-old told reporters here.

"I'm coming from Balaji office right now and the only answer I get is that the movie is not ready. How is it possible? The movie is releasing in one week. If I'm not shown the film before release, I will take legal action, " she added.

Deepika, who was shown the script of the film before it was filmed, said she wants to see whether she has been portrayed in the right light or not.

"When the film was being made, I was shown the script and I did read it. I have no problem with the script. But there is a lot of difference between reading the script and interpreting that on the screen. I want to see how they have portrayed my character. Because if there is something bad, then my image will be ruined, " said the Delhi girl.

Ekta has maintained that only 30 percent of the film is based from Deepika's incident and the rest is pure imagination.

According to Deepika, she was offered money as compensation for her story but she refused.

"Ekta asked me if I want to be paid. But I said no. she didn't mention an amount but she said she can pay me for this. But I told her that I don't want anything because it's a story on my life, " she said.

In the real life incident, Dipika said, her boyfriend secretly filmed both of them involved in intimate physical contact.

Kainaz Motivala, who essays the role in the film, reveals that she has never met her and was told very little about the original incident.

"I was told about the original story very briefly. I haven't met her, " Kainaz told.

The actress argues that the film is not cent percent based on what happened with Deepika, and the character she plays is quite different from her.

"This film is not 100 percent real. It's also partly fictional. My character is also not all based on Deepika. She is from Delhi, Ragini is a south Bombay girl. As I had never met Deepika, I didn't get to do much research, " said Kainaz.

Report says that while Deepika was recovering from the shock in Delhi, Ekta was planning to make a film on the MMS scandal in Mumbai.

"Ragini MMS", which is produced by Ekta and directed by Pawan Kripalani, is slated to hit screens May 13 and is about a couple who go for an adventurous weekend and get filmed by 24 cameras amid some paranormal activity.

Report says that while Deepika was recovering from the shock in Delhi, Ekta was planning to make a film on the MMS scandal in Mumbai.

When Deepika's friend, who work in Balaji production, asked Ekta if she would like to meet a girl who has gone through such a similar incident, Ekta grabbed the opportunity. Deepika has even signed a contract with Balaji Films.

Asked if she ever insisted to meet Deepika, she said: "I am sure there is a reason why I was not made to meet her."

Meanwhile... Stir over Ragini MMS posters

Ekta Kapoor's upcoming paranormal film Ragini MMS seems to be attracting controversies. As the release date is approaching, the film is incurring the wrath of locals.

The faces of the lead actors of Ragini MMS on the posters of the film were blackened at Andheri and Bandra

Some angry residents have pulled down posters of the film at some places and also blackened the faces of the lead couple Rajkumar Yadav and Kainaz Motivala, citing vulgarity concerns.

Airport authorities has pulled down two hoardings near Santa Cruz station and few posters have been blackened in Andheri East and the Bandra lake.

This has left the Balaji team fuming. They feel someone is trying to sabotage their film.

Kainaz seems unperturbed by such actions and says, "It doesn't matter. People have loved the promos and I think they will still come and watch it."

Raj adds confidently, "I think everyone has their own perception. Hopefully this will not harm our film and people's perception will change once they watch the film."
