Bollywood movies have been getting in all sorts of trouble willy-nilly. Some offend sensibilities, while some cut too close to the bone. One way or another, Bollywood seems to keep running into legal trouble these days.
Ram Gopal Verma’s ‘Sarkar 3’, which went on the floors recently, is the latest Bollywood project to join the legal trouble club.
A legal notice has been issued by the lawyers of distributor Narendra Hirawat that states,
Narendra Hirawat is ‘the sole authority and copyright-holder/negative right-holder of the said film in the original version and only and only he is in the possession of prequel, sequel, remake and all other irreversible world negative rights for perpetuity.
If RGV decides not to respond to the legal notice, Hirawat says that he will be forced to apply for a legal stay on the film. There has been no comment/reaction from RGV’s side, yet.
Ram Gopal Verma’s Bollywood stint has been chequered, at best. The last thing he needs, is one of his promising projects getting stuck mid-production. It remains to be seen how he will cross this particular hurdle.
