Mumbai: It was only a few days back that it was learnt that Madhur Bhandarkar's gritty drama, 'Chandni Bar' is gearing up for a reel life comeback. Harish Kotian and Sandeep Choudhary recently announced the sequel- 'Chandni Bar 2 Ruby Bar'.
However, director Madhur Bhandarkar and late Lata Mohan's son Amit are shocked by reports of a sequel to their Tabu-starrer. Amit claims to hold the copyrights of the film and has gone ahead to file a complaint at the Indian Motion Picture Producers’ Association.
In his letter, Amit claims that he has IPR (Intellectual Property Rights) of the film and nobody can use parts of film or title without their consent. He added that it is a copyright and trademark violation as they have gone ahead without his permission.
On the other hand, producer and director of the second part, who had earlier reported to have confirmed that they are making a sequel to ‘Chandni Bar’ are now refuting any such claims. They are adamant that their film ‘Chandni Bar 2 Ruby Bar’ is not a sequel.
