A division bench of the Bombay High Court has dismissed an appeal filed by him claiming to be the owner of the copyright. He claimed his nephew Shaan Uttamsingh and others were guilty of infringement of his copyright by trying to make a 3D version of Sholay.
He challenged a gift deed of September 2000 where Sippy Films gifted all rights in Sholay to his nephews Shaan and Sascha’s company which in turn gave exclusive 3D and 2D theatrical rights of the film to producer Jayantilal Gada and his company.
The court ruled that he had failed to make out a prima facie case in his favour and he had nothing to do with the film’s 3D rights.
