Shahrukh Khan has sent legal notice to him for titling his next Telugu film as Chammak Challo. It was rumoured earlier that Rao had received a notice from Red Chillies Entertainment over the use of 'Chammak Challo', which is a chartbuster song from SRK's super-hit movie Ra.One.
Talking to a leading English newspaper, DS Rao said that those rumours are baseless and he has not received any notice from Shahrukh Khan or his team. Meanwhile, the producer added, Chammak Challo means 'nerajana' in Telugu. Hence, there will not be any case of plagiarism against the title.
DS Rao had earlier titled his previous movie as Mr Nokia, but he had to re-christen it as Mr Nookayya after the mobile company objected the title. When asked about paying any monetary compensation Ra.One makers, the producer says that he does not want pay money. He would rather go for an alternative title, if the makers object the title.
However, Shahrukh Khan was not available to comment on the issue as he has currently been on a foreign trip. But Niloefur, a PR executive of SRK says that his firm would take a call once he returns from the trip.
