3D version of the Sholay is released today, the movie was blockbuster in 1975. But the original producer and Director Ramesh Sippy moved to Supreme Court against this. He had done the same before a Bench led by Chief Justice P Sathasivam, who has fixed the matter for hearing Friday. Ramesh Sippy sought an urgent hearing before the court, pointing out that the movie was slated to be released Friday. He has moved the apex court against the Bombay High Court order refusing to stay the release of the film.
He is standing in his argument that ownership of the copyright of the movie and said that his nephews Shaan and Shasha, and others were guilty of infringement of his copyright by trying to make a 3D version of Sholay. Anyhow the movie is released today.
