While Shah has gone to town announcing his project, produced by Firoz Nadiadwala, sources from the NFDC, which apparently holds the original rights of the film, said that they have not signed off on any agreement with the makers on the transfer of rights.

Speaking about the project, Shah said that it was Nadiadwala who commissioned the project to him and that all details of the sequel rest with him and the NFDC. However, insiders at the organization said that they have yet not been approached by the producer to purchase the rights, and that it still remains in the hands of the NFDC.

Rajesh Das, the head of distribution, says, “We hold the rights to the original film. Kundan has approached us with a proposal but Firoz has not approached us. We are yet to sign the proposal sent by Kundan.” Nadiadwala remained unavailable for comment.
