The film finally gets a go ahead from the High Court provided the makers pay the remaining dues within eight weeks
The Zanjeer remake has been embroiled in a host of controversies since its inception. The film has been the bone of contention between the Mehra brothers – Amit Mehra, Puneet Mehra and Sumeet Mehra. Adai Mehra Productions Pvt Ltd (AMPL) owned by Amit Mehra, and Prakash Mehra Productions (PMP) which is a property of all the three brothers, have been stuck in a legal tussle for quite some time now.
AMPL acquired the rights of Zanjeer from PMP, but the latter claimed that the dues weren’t settled for the remake starring Priyanka Chopra and Ram Charan Teja. The total amount that was to be paid was Rs 4.10 crores. As per the Bombay High Court order, AMPL now needs to clear the remaining dues of Rs 1.18 crores within eight weeks for the movie to be released.
Well, we hope all the hindrances are cleared before the Hindi and the Telugu remake of the film hits the screens.
