    More trouble cooks up for Zanjeer remake

    The team ofZanjeerremake is slated to face more trouble before releasing the movie as more obstacles are in waiting to create a road blockade for the same. Writer duo Salim Khan and Javed Akhtar has moved the Bombay High Court, seeking an urgent stay order on the release of the new version. Though the lawsuit, which has been filed with assistance from a law firm Ashok Purohit and Co., does not mention any sum of money which the writers would be seeking as a compensation. The application only makes it clear that the new version could not be released without their consent as they hold the copyright of the original “literary work”.

    The writers have claimed that Prakash Mehra had the authority to produce the movie on their script only once and any reproduction of the same story would need their authorisation. Last week only some kind of relief could be sensed by the producers of the Zanjeer remake as HC judge, Justice R. D. Dhanuka cleared the way for the movie’s release. But in that particular litigation, Salim-Javed were not involved as it was between the three Mehra brothers - Amit Mehra on one side and Sumeet and Puneet on the other.

    Based on the April 3 verdict by Justice Dhanuka, Senior Advocate Ravi Kadam, representing the writer duo before Justice S. J. Kathawalla, told the court on Monday that the involved parties had virtually accepted their disagreement. Advocate Birendra Saraf, who is representing the producers of the new version, sought a break to file a reply to the new petition. Consequently Kadam sought a stay on the release of the movie. However, Saraf informed the court that due to some pending work, the movie couldn't be released for at least 4 more weeks, anyways. Justice Kathawalla recorded this statement and deferred the case till April 17
