It is said that a company called Movie Tee Vee Enterprises is taking Balaji Telefilms to court for using the remixed version of the song 'Duniya Mein Logon Ko' in Once Upon A Time In Mumbai. The original song is from the Rajesh Khanna and Mumtaz starrer film Apna Desh (1972).
Balaji claims that they have taken the rights of the said song from Sa Re Ga Ma for remaking it; while Movie Tee Vee Enterprises claims that Sa Re Ga Ma cannot rightfully give the rights for a remix of the song, as they own the negative rights. Currently, Balaji's legal department is looking into the issue.
It's been three months since Once Upon A Time In Mumbai was released and did good business but the fire hasn't died down yet. While Ekta Kapoor is looking at future projects, she is embroiled in a controversy involving her previous film.
