The filmmakers have allegedly received threat calls from the underworld and a complaint has also been registered at the Parliament Street Police Station in Delhi.
"We have been receiving calls from a man claiming to be the right hand of Dawood, Chota Shakeel," said director Vishal Mishra in a statement here.
"We are law abiding citizens and stay in a democratic country. We haven't done anything wrong in making the film on Dawood and will maintain that," the statement said.
"We also don't know how much truth lies behind the caller and his threats but all we can do is at least let the police and people know of it," the statement read.
However, R.P. Meena, Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police, told IANS: "We have not registered an FIR in this connection on their allegations. Their complaint is being studied for further course of investigation if needed."
With Sunil Grover refusing to file any complaint against anybody, it becomes a case of suspicion that was there a threat call or is it just a promotional strategy by the makers.
Directed by Vishal Mishra and produced by Vinod Ramani, "Coffee With D" revolves around the story of a journalist who attempted to fix an appointment with underworld don Dawood Ibrahim.
The movie is the first release of 2017 and is slated to hit the screens on Friday.
