Title trouble for Dekh Bhai DekhJune 1st, 2009 - 10:08 am ICT by Sampurn Wire
Popular TV series Dekh Bhai Dekh maker Anand Mahendroo, who was about to begin shooting for the film version of Dekh Bhai Dekh, is now left fuming over the release of Rahat Kazmi’s black comedy thriller by the same title.
Mahendroo had registered the title a year ago but claims that some mischief has taken place and it has landed with Rahat Kazmi who is making a comedy starring stars such as Gracy Singh, Manish Koirala’s brother Siddharth, Vijay Raaz and Raghuveer Yadav. This film is about to release in mid- June. Mahendroo plans to begin the shoot of his film too around that time but he is not at all happy with the title dilemma. He states that his Dekh Bhai Dekh is synonymous with Shekhar Suman and Farida Jalal and any another name for his film will have no value to it. That is the reason why he is going to fight over it.
However, Mahendroo hasn’t spoken to Rahat yet but some trade veterans are looking into the matter for him as of now. It is learnt that if Rahat goes on to release his film next month, Mahendroo will have to part with the title but at the same time, Mahendroo is planning legal action against him.
A calm and composed Rahat on the other hand claims that he had registered the title a year ago with the association and I has certification for the same. He also claims to have ample proof over it and is hopeful of releasing his film next month. -Sampurn Media
