Tollywood was taken by a storm when the news of copyrights issue surfaced for Charan’s ‘Zanjeer’. However, the road blocks are not tightening their screws with producer laying red carpet to ‘old’ writers.
Tollywood’s mega powerstar Ramcharan is all set to foray into Bollywood with the remake of yesteryear’s superhit movie ‘Zanjeer’. Writer Javed Akhtar, the original writing partner of old ‘Zanjeer’ along with Salim Khan demanded the makers of new Zanjeer to take their permission for remaking the movie. Akhtar, an active copyrights issue activist, stated that it is a creator’s moral right as per the latest Copyrights Act to maintain sanctity and originality. This indeed restricts the present writers and directors to change the original form of script.
However, Amit Mehra, producer of Charan’s debut hindi flick made it clear that they will meet Salim-Javed duo once the script work is finished. Before clearing it that the original script will be intact, he promised the veteran writers that he even will maintain those dialogues too.
