The name of ZEE TV’s new show ‘Alladin’ is being challenged after filmmaker Sujoy Ghosh claimed he has the same title registered to him.
Sources report that Ghosh, who is making the mega-budgeted Alladin with Amitabh Bachchan, Riteish Deshmukh and Sahil Khan wants the makers of the TV show to change their title, according to Mid-Day.
A source from Alladin told Mid-Day, “Sujoy has the title registered under his name and doesn’t want anyone else to use it.
The film is currently under production and Ghosh۪s team have initiated talks with ZEE officials and asked them to alter the title.”
Sam, from the production team of the film admits, “We have registered the title Alladin for both television and film. ZEE is not authorised to use that title and we۪ve asked them for a change.”
However, Meenakshi who works with the TV show stated she knew nothing of this. “I have no idea about the fight over this title. Maybe ZEE is dealing with it. I am totally clueless about any such problem.”
‘Alladin’ begins tomorrow and takes the Friday, Saturday and Sunday 19:30 slot.
