Hollywood film by the name of ‘Action Jackson’ released in 1988 and it seems the name is registered by Warner Bros. However, producer Gordhan Tanwani has the name registered to him to for the sub-continent of India. Apparently Tanwani received a notice from Warner Bros on 4th February.
TOI report Tanwani stating, “I will not give up my title that easily. I have registered it with all the producers’ associations ��� like IMPPA (Indian Motion Picture Producers’ Association), the Guild, AMPTPP (Association of Motion Pictures and��Television Programme Producers) and even the film association based out of Hyderabad. My film is being made in Hindi and not in English. When you register a title with any or all of these associations, they get their clearance from��the Government of India.”
“…The title is registered against his name. I have done my due diligence. I will now reply to the letter from Warner Bros’ lawyers with all facts duly stated. Obviously, Eros will be in the loop on developments. And then we will await the outcome,” he continues.
