Javed Akhtar raises copyright issue on Zanjeer remake

Amitabh Bachchan starrer Zanjeer, written by Salim Khan and Javed Akhtar, was produced and directed by Prakash Mehra. Now, his son Amit Mehra is remaking Zanjeer with Ram Charan Tej and priyanka chopra.

Script writer, Javed Akhtar says the producers of Zanjeer remake, Amit Mehra and Reliance Entertainment, have not taken permission from the original writers Salim-Javed.

But while the remake of Zanjeer has made Akhtar raise the copyright laws to find a way to reclaim his creation, the scriptwriter remains hopeful about the amendments to the country’s copyright laws in general.

The Copyright (Amendment) Bill 2010, aimed at providing independent rights to creators of literary and musical works in cinematographic films, entitles them to royalty which was denied to them so far.
