Hrithik’s film lands in legal trouble

There have been exciting stories about the film’s casting ever since director Sanjay Gupta announced his next film with Hrithik Roshan under Rakesh Roshan’s production. But now, the film has landed in a legal tangle with popular model-turned-actor Sudhanshu Pandey sending a legal notice alleging the makers of copyright infringement.

Apparently, Sudhanshu was allegedly offered a credit as the associate producer in the titles or two per cent of the profits by Rakesh Roshan. However, Sudhanshu was later in for for a huge shock when he was informed by Rakesh Roshan that he would not be given any credit as a writer. Sudhanshu then filed a complaint with the Indian Film and Television Producers Council (IFTPC) claiming to be the sole intellectual property owner of the script.

The entire case took a whole new turn when another writer named Vijay Kumar Mishra issued a public notice stating Sudhanshu’s allegations false. Neither Hrithik nor his papa Roshan were available to comment about this issue.
