JP Dutta’s ‘Border 2’ in trouble


Filmmaker JP Dutta’s epic movie ‘Border 2’ has landed itself in legal bother.

According to Bollywood Hungama, Bharat Shah has filed a legal case against Dutta claiming that he owns the world rights for the film.

He was cited in the publication saying, “Yes we have issued a legal notice to J.P. Dutta since there is already a case against him pending in the High Court that we had filed earlier for non-payment.” Detailing the case Shah adds, “Border that released in 1997 went on to become a superhit and Dutta was supposed to share a part of the profits made from the film with us. However, he has refused to honour this and continues to turn a blind eye on the case.” Further talking about the sequel to the film, Shah asserts, “We have the Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) of the film (Border) and have filed a suit against Dutta in the Bombay High Court in respect of this.”

Dutta had announced a couple of years ago that as well as ‘Border 2’, he would be making ‘Border 3’ and ‘Border 4’.
