The maverick filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma is well known for hard hitting films on screen and controversial statements off the screen. This man with different vision never fears to speak his mind- no matter how many eyebrows are raised against him!

It is a well known fact that Ram Gopal Varma has high regard for the film Sholay and also made a disastrous remake of it in the name Ram Gopal Varma ki Aag! But certain troubles can hit even fearless people like him! Sources say that RGV is alleged for copying the blockbuster Bollywood film Sholay without seeking permission of Ramesh Sippy- who has the original rights of it. Sascha Sippy, the grandson of Sholay’s producers Vijay Sippy and G.P.Sippy filed this case against RGV.

The judgment is passed in favour of Sholay’s producers by ordering RGV to pay a fine of Rs. 10 Lakh for this copyright infringement. We will have to wait and see how RGV responds to this on his favourite platform- Social Media!
