The Delhi High Court Wednesday extended the interim stay on the release of Ram Gopal Varma 's much hyped remake of the 1970s' blockbuster Sholay .

Posting the matter for hearing on March 2, Justice Gita Mittal gave one week time to all the parties to file their written submission.



The roadblocks for the release of the film tilted Ram Gopal Varma Ki Sholay in which mega superstar Amitabh Bachchan has assumed the role of Gabbar Singh came on a lawsuit filed by the grandson of G P Sippy , who had produced ‘Sholay’.

The suit filed by Sippy Films Pvt Ltd and Sholay Media and Entertainment Pvt Ltd, owned by Sascha Sippy and Shan Uttam Singh, had sought stay on the release of Varma's film maintaining the use of the name ‘Sholay’ by any other entity amounts to infringement of trade mark and copyrights.

In the suit filed through the law firm Anand and Anand, they contended that they also have copyright on the use of character Gabbar Singh which was played by late Amjad Khan in ‘Sholay’.

Sascha Sippy, director of the Sippy Films, claimed that the late G P Sippy's son Ajit Sippy who reportedly sold the copyrights to Varma, had no such rights himself to transfer the same to others.

The suit was filed after it was reported that Varma had began shooting film titled.

The suit said the use of names – ‘Sholay’ and ‘Gabbar Singh’ – by Varma also amounts to infringement of moral right as there was threat to destruction of original work.

He submitted that the script and screenplay of ‘Sholay’ are the original literary works, protected under Sections 14 and 51 of the Copyright Act of 1957.
