International charity Medecins Sans Frontieres is taking legal action against the producers of a new Bollywood film, saying its misrepresentation of the medical group could put its aid workers deployed in conflict zones at risk.Action-thriller "Phantom" was released Friday and features British-Indian actress Katrina Kaif playing a role she has described as an MSF aid worker who helps a disgraced Indian soldier, played by actor Saif Ali Khan, to assassinate Pakistani militants accused of being behind the 2008 Mumbai bombings.MSF said it had not been consulted over the content of the film and was not associated with it in any way.MSF – which has thousands of health workers in more than 70 countries – said it was essential that the group was not misrepresented given the dangerous nature of their work.
