Ramesh Sippy to move to Supreme Court

Not so long ago, the Bombay High Court rejected Sippy’s plea seeking a stay on the release of Sholay’s 3D version. But the filmmaker isn’t going to give up the legal battle it seems…

Ramesh Sippy, who directed the 1975 blockbuster Sholay, has been in a legal dispute with his nephew Sasha Sippy over the copyright of his film which is being released in 3D format early next year. After the Bombay High Court refused to grant a stay on the release of Sholay 3D, Sippy is now considering moving to the Supreme Court for the same issue. The filmmaker is also not happy with the posters of the new Sholay. While talking to a tabloid, the director-producer said, “Have you seen the posters of Sholay 3D? It doesn’t look like the film I made. I never wanted the original film to be tampered with. But I might still have approved of the 3D version, had they made me an active participant in the process. But they didn’t even take my consent.”

In fact, Sasha has even invited his uncle for the premiere of Sholay 3D which will be held in the first week of 2014. However, Ramesh Sippy may give it a miss. “I don’t think I want to watch the film”, added the original director of Amitabh Bachchan-Dharmendra starrer.
