Ram Charan's  B-town project facing teething problem

Ram Charan Teja's ticket to Bollywood seems to be facing teething problems. His dream B-town debut in the remake of cult classic Zanjeer is running into legal trouble, as the original writers of the blockbuster film Salim-Javed have raised copyright issue.

Javed Akhtar has objected to the plans of makers of the forthcoming film to remake the yesteryear film without seeking the writer's permission. The writer has claimed that he has spoken with co-writer Salim Khan about the issue and the latter too is not happy with the development.

According to him, the producers should take permission from the scriptwriters, as it is their creation and no producers can claim to be their property. The remake of Zanjeer is produced by Prakash Mehra, the director-producer of the original version, and directed by Apoorva Lakhia. It is expected to take off in April.
