Looks like the legal tussles of 1973 Zanjeer remake are ever ending. Amit Mehra, son of late Prakash Mehra is producing the remake version. Going in to the story Amit Mehra had reportedly bought the remake rights from his brothers-the elder one Sumeet who stays in the US and the younger sibling Puneet who stays in Mumbai – has defaulted on payments. Consequently, Sumeet and Puneet have terminated the contract that gave Amit their make rights in the first place.
The Arbitrator dealing with the case had upheld the termination of the contract. Amit Mehra had approached the Bombay High Court. And according to the court decree, the film can be shot as the case proceedings are going on. However, he cannot release the remake until further orders from the HC.
