Pankaj Kapur’s debut directorial venture that stars Shahid Kapur and Sonam Kapoor has ended up in a legal tangle.
Pankaj Kapur’s old friend Nawman Malik has claimed that the title ‘Mausam’ is registered under his name. Not only the title but also the concept of the movie is his brain child.
He said that he had narrated the story to Pankaj Kapur few years ago. Pankaj Kapur loved the story so much that he wanted to do the movie featuring his son. But because Shahid was abroad at that time the meeting dint take place. He forgot about the whole incident until he saw the trailers of the movie which seemed to be a lot like his story.
Nawman has now registered a compliant with Association of Motion Pictures and TV Programme Producers. He has also now moved to Mumbai High Court asking for an injunction against producer Sheetal Talwar and director Pankaj Kapur for using the title 'Mausam'. He has also produced a footage titled ‘Mausam’ which he claims to have filmed.
Nawman Malik is a producer and actor who have worked along side Pankaj Kapur in television series ‘Neem Ka Ped’.
