No Copyrights Problem for 'Zanjeer'

News about original script writers of 1970 super duper hit flick ‘Zanjeer’ viz. Javed Akhtar and Salim Khan raising the issue of copyrights is considered as a roadblock in taking the Bollywood debut of Ramcharan ahead. During Javed Sahib’s recent visit to Patna for Bihar Centenary Celebrations, he said ‘ones who are remaking Zanjeer have not sought our permission.’

As a reply and gratitude of respect towards this writer duo, Amit Mehra, producer for new version of ‘Zaneer’ responded. ‘I will discuss on entire remake script of Zanjeer with Salim Khan and Javed Akhtar once it gets ready. We have actually bought the rights of Zanjeer in January 2012. I am going to meet Javed and Salim sir soon because I want their blessings before I start my first film as a producer. More or less, this newer version will be same as original but more modernized and dialogues will become more important. Shooting will begin next month in Mumbai without any problems.’ For information sake, Amit Mehra is son of ‘Zanjeer’ original producer, director Prakash Mehra. As Mehra and Javed, Salim are more like family members, copyright is not to become a hurdle.
