Ekta Kapoor slaps a case against Veena Malik's 'The Dirty Picture'
Ekta Kapoor’s ‘The Dirty Picture’ bagged many compliments and awards; but the Kannada remake of the film, directed by Trishul, has irked the producer. Apparently, Ekta is not happy with the title of the Kannada remake and has filed a case against the use of the film.
Ekta is miffed with the use of the similar title for the Kannada remake. However, the title of the film has got a clearance from the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC).
Meanwhile, Ekta has written a letter to the president of the KFCC requesting him to withdraw the permission for the use of the title by Venkatappa and has given them a five-day deadline.
However, the director Trishul is unfazed by Ekta’s claims. Talking to a daily, he said, “There is no bar on keeping a title of any other language film to be made in a different language. There are several precedents before. We have a Kannada film called Housefull (title inspired by Hindi movie) and Bhadra (Telugu title). We have legally obtained clearance from the KFCC. Why should we change the title now?"...being a human...
