Ram Gopal Varma's Sholay has been in controversy right since its inception. Earlier it was over the copyright issue on its story. Now it's on the title. The Delhi High Court has issued a stay on the use of the film's title Ram Gopal Varma Ke Sholay.
Ravi Prakash from Ram Gopal Varma's Factory confirms, "The case has been going on in Delhi HC for quite sometime". There was also a rumour that the film's title will be changed to Ram Gopal Varma Ka Gabbar Singh. Corny as it may sound; RGV's self-obsession in the title doesn't end. But Ravi Prakash denies, "It's not true. We are only waiting for the verdict of the Court to see if the title can be retained".
It may be recalled that Sascha Sippy is the copyright holder for the original film Sholay and he had issued a notice against RGV for remaking the film without officially acquiring rights.
