Don 2 may face wrath from the real Don!
Shah Rukh Khan and Farhan Akhtar’s Don 2 may face some legal trouble. The original producers of the 1978 Amitabh Bachchan starrer Don- Nariman Films, have slapped a legal notice at the producers and are dragging Excel Entertainment, Red Chillies and Reliance Entertainment to court for infringement of copyright pertaining to the title and remake of the film.
As per Nariman films, in the year 2005 Shah Rukh Khan and Farhan Akhtar had approached them for the remaking rights of the original film ‘Don,’ through Javed Akhtar.
“We had given remaking rights only for the film Don – The chase begins again in 2005. But the rights for Don 2 are yet in our possession, therefore we have raised our objection upon the infringement on our copyright, through our solicitors Film India Corporate Legam Law Firm,” says a spokesperson from Nariman films.
Advocate Digvijay Chopra confirms, “A legal Notice has been sent to Excel Entertainment, Red Chillies Entertainment, Reliance Entertainment, Shahrukh Khan, Farhan Akhtar, Ritesh Sidhwani and Baba Arts for Infringement of Copyrights .
My clients had only issued the rights for the remake of Don- The chase begins again, which expired in year 2009. Thereafter, they never renewed the said agreement and no prospective rights were taken from Nariman Films.”...being a human...
