‘Sarkar 3’, starring Amitabh Bachchan, got in a legal trouble after Narendra Hirawat & Co filed a case against the makers of the upcoming Ram Gopal Varma directorial. The makers have denied the claims.

Holder of copyrights of over 1,300 movies, Narendra Hirawat & Co acquired the copyrights of the ‘Sarkar’ franchise after the release of the second part and is in possession of prequel, sequel, remake and all other irreversible world negative rights in perpetuity.

"We are extremely disappointed with this move from the producers of 'Sarkar 3'. As a cautionary step, we even issued a notice to the makers in October 2016, but they have still failed to obtain permission from us for the release of the movie," Shreyans Hirawat, Executive Head of Narendra Hirawat & Co., said in a statement.

"We bought all the legal rights of 'Sarkar' franchise years ago and are left with no other option than to approach the High Court. Looking at the current situation, we are hopeful that the court will grant injunction and subsequently stop the release of 'Sarkar 3'," added Hirawat. Sarkar 3 is the third part of the Sarkar’ franchise and is scheduled to release on May 12.
