    UTV's Rang De Basanti has managed to break all the success records of films from the recent past. And the producers were so ecstatic that they released an ad stating that the film was the second highest grosser of the decade, the first being Zee's Gadar-Ek Prem Katha. The ad in question was featured in two leading dailies.

    This claim hasn't gone too well with Karan Johar, Yash Chopra and Rakesh Roshan, the producers of Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, Bunty Aur Babli and Koi Mil Gaya, respectively. They have taken offence at their films being named in a bad light. The ad claimed that Rang De Basanti had broken records of the above films.

    UTV's Ronnie Screwvala has apparently apologized to Aditya Chopra and Karan Johar. He said that his intentions were not to bring down the other films, but just to showcase the success of their film.

    However, Karan Johar said that he has not got any apology. Rakesh Roshan, the producer of Koi Mil Gaya too was quite upset. According to him, UTV was not aware of the box office collections of his films. There have been whispers that Karan Johar and Yash Chopra are planning to take legal action. Nothing has been confirmed on that front. Rakesh Roshan was not planning to go to court, since he is busy with the post-production work of his next film, Krrish.
