Basically, a corrupt hospital system keeps the death of a patient from his family to prolong treatment, thus racking up the bill.

Actor Akshay Kumar and producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali are the ones to directly come under fire.

The IMA is to send a legal notice to the actor-producer duo.

"The way the producer and the actor have shown the medical profession is a wrong way," IMA's honorary secretary general Dr. K. K. Aggarwal told PTI. "That is why we have decided to serve them legal notice."

"There may be few black sheep in our profession, but showing the medical profession in such a bad taste is nothing less than incriminating," Dr. Ashish Tiwari, a medico-legal expert from Mumbai, told PTI.

Earlier this week, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal called the film "amazing" and a must-watch.

"Medical profession is like a temple and very different from political, police or other fields. Hence, you should be responsible and careful while portraying this profession," Dr. Aggarwal further told PTI.

"IMA is anguished over the way medical profession is projected in the movie 'Gabbar is Back'," Dr. Jayesh Lele of IMA Maharashtra said in a statement, multiple news outlets reported. "We have marked copies (of the letter sent to I&B minister) to the Censor Board and the Union Health Minister, hoping that some action will be taken on the same." he further told in the statement.

The legal notice demands suspension of the film from being screen in theatres until the objectionable scenes are removed.
