The Zanjeer remake has been in the news lately, firstly because Priyanka Chopra confirmed she’s doing the film and secondly because of Mahie Gill‘s item number. However, while director Amit Mehra seems to have made great plans for this film, he overlooked one thing – getting proper permission from the writers of the original Zanjeer, Salim-Javed. Here’s what Javed Akhtar had to say about it.
Apparently, Amit Mehra went to Salim and Javed asking them for permission to remake the film, and Salim-Javed told him that they should sit down and officially discuss the matter. However, Amit Mehra never sat down with him and later went to the media claiming he had gotten clearance. Hence, Salim-Javed have hired a legal team to deal with copyright issues.
Guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens with this one!
