Akbar was apparently being threatened by Subroto Roy's son-in-law for a piece written about Roy in a column. He explains how Ambani's deal with such journalists. He promises to take care of the case.
J: Sir, I have given it to Pradip.
A: Yes yes, thank you.
J: Secondly, there was an issue Akbar had with Subroto Roy that he (Akbar) wants your help on. Some idiotic two lines were carried in his newspaper...
...and now Subroto Roy is wild.
A: That he will be. What was written?
J: I don't know. That's by a columnist, maybe some gossip item. I'm not sure but that's not his (Akbar's piece).
J: And it's some harmless thing. But you know, Subroto Roy is very sensitive and all this, so... as he should be.
J: So Amar Singh said, please request....uhh, Akbar said, please request Amar Singhji to help me out on this...
J [continues]: ...because I don't want any misunderstanding or confusion. But some Abhijeet Sinha of Subroto Roy has been abusing us and has sent a letter here again.
...that hum tumhari band baja denge
. He is his corporate communications chief.
A: No, that's his son-in-law.
J: Whoever he is. But he has been abusing us, saying he will do this and that.
A: He will do so because that's what their business is like. Hello?
A: They don't have much to do unlike Ambanis. They have justice league departments, lawyers, judges. It's their job that they give a legal notice. Then the judge will give notice.
A [continues]: Someone had written against us. He was picked up under a case from the past and beaten up quite well.
A: They are not nice people.
J: I told Akbar, I will speak to Amar Singhji and I will request him to call you.
A: No, I will call him just now.
J: Okay, thanks.
