Shahrukh Khan’s 'Don 2' lands in legal trouble
Don 2, produced jointly by Shahrukh Khan, Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani, has now run into a legal trouble over a copyright issue.

The allegation of copyright violation has come from none other than the production house Nariman Films that produced the original Don movie starring Amitabh Bachchan in 1978.

According to Nariman films, Excel Entertainment, helmed by Farhan and Ritesh, only had the copyright to remake the original Don movie which they did in 2006 with Don: The Chase Begins Again. The agreement for the remake expired in 2009 and was not renewed by Excel Entertainment.

A legal notice has been sent to Excel Entertainment for the infringement of copyright.

Moreover, Nariman Films claim that they had even registered the title ‘Don 2 - Return of the King’ and since the posters of Don 2 claim ‘The King is Back’, it is yet another infringement.

Nariman films will be approaching the courts to halt the release of Don 2 on December 23.

Meanwhile, the officials of Excel Entertainment rubbish that there has been any copyright infringement. They say that Don 2 is a entirely new story and concept and derives nothing from the 1978 movie in terms of creativity.

Don 2: The Chase Continues stars Shahrukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra and Lara Dutta. The film is a sequel to Don: The Chase Begins which was directed by Farhan Akhtar.
