Ram Leela, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s latest directorial venture is once again wrapped up in controversy. The problem now is that filmmaker Mukul Abhyankar has raised an objection that he owns the rights to the title.
Abhyankar has repeatedly tried to speak with Sanjay but he hasn’t really responded to it. Now Abhyankar has supposedly sent him a legal notice.
He said that he was producing the movie along with UTV and had actors such as Naseerudin Shah and Dharmendra signed on for the project. He said that the production didn’t really work out and they went their separate ways in 2010. He was now making the movie with different producers. But the fact of the matter was that he had registered the title for himself. It seems Sanjay had earlier told Abhyankar that he was going to change the title before releasing it.
