Sholay makers demands 4 crs from GS-2 producer
Gabbar Singh gave big boost to Pawan Kalyan and Power Star will star in sequel to this blockbuster. Actually, Gabbar Singh title was chosen from the character name of antagonist (played by Amjad Khan) in Bollywood legend film maker Rohan Sippy’s iconic movie Sholay. Producer Ganesh Babu earlier paid Rs 25 lakhs for using the title Gabbar Singh for his film with Power Star. Now, the Bollywood makers are reportedly demanding Rs 4 crore for Gabbar Singh sequel tentatively titled as Gabbar Singh 2.
Producer Sharath Marar announced the sequel few months ago and shooting is expected to start in September under Sampath Nandi direction. Ramesh Sippy, who trademarked Sholay and all the iconic characters in the movie is not involved in the issue. His children Rohan and Sheena have demanded the money. It is heard that Marar is looking at a possible title change after this fresh development. Few days ago, Sampath Nandi who will direct the movie stated that Bengal Tiger is one of the titles being considered for the film. So, Pawan who is also co-producer of movie may also accept this title because no one would enjoy to spend such whopping amount of 4 crores just for a title.
