New Delhi [India], Mar 21 (ANI): Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt has slammed author Yasser Usman for his unauthorised biography on him.

Dutt took to Twitter on Tuesday to clarify the matter and said he is planning to take legal action against the author and Juggernaut Books.

The actor shared a note to put across his point and captioned it as, "I hope better sense will prevail and there will be no further excerpts that will hurt me or my family. My official autobiography will be out soon which will be authentic and based on facts."

The note shared by the 'Munna Bhai M.B.B.S.' star read, "I have not authorised either Juggernaut Publications or Yaseer Usman to write/publish my biography. Our lawyers had sent them a legal notice, in response to which Juggernaut Publications said that contents of the proposed book are based on information available in public domain from authentic sources."

"However, from the excerpts that are appearing in the newspaper are partly based on my old interviews but rest all seemed to be based on hearsay, 1990's tabloids and gossip magazines, most of which are figments of imagination and not true. I have consulted with my legal team on the next course of action."

Juggernaut Books, on Wednesday, responded to the actor's statement and said they were "sorry to hear that Mr Sanjay Dutt was upset with the book."
