Pooja Bhatt slams Vipul Shah over film title
Actress-turned-filmmaker Pooja Bhatt took to Twitter to slam Vipul Shah's over the title of his latest film Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty. Bhatt accused Shah of copyright infringement.
'First THANK YOU then HOLIDAY! Akshay Kumar's producers have an affinity for the titles of my films.Gentle Reminder- 'Karma can be a bitch'! Vipul Shah approached me for HOLIDAY & I refused.He approached Guild-Rejected. Next stop? IMPPA where he registered HOLIDAY with a tag line,' she tweeted.
'It certainly was a BO dud,that is why I can't release the title before all revenue avenues are exploited.Owe that to my partners. I am fighting a lone battle still with regards to THANK YOU. The HOLIDAY issue proves nothing has changed, the rot remains & might is right!' she continued.
'Bollywood wants Industry status? What for? There was a time when your 'word' mattered. Now even contracts don't matter. It's a free for all.This is not about UTV or Vipul Shah per se. This is about a larger issue.Why register titles if anyone can hijack them anytime they wish?' she added.
The film, starring Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha, is the official remake of Tamil action-thriller Thuppaki.
