Drishyam 2 Gets Into Legal Trouble; Complaint Filed Against Its Producers?
Drishyam starring Ajay Devgn and Tabu was a huge hit. Directed by late Nishikant Kamat and co-produced by Kumar Mangat, the movie managed to widely entertain the audience. It is well known that the movie was a remake of the Malayalam film. A few weeks ago, Malayalam superstar Mohanlal entertained his fans with Drishyam 2 - The Resumption. The movie was a hit among the masses.

And now, Panorama Studios International's Kumar Mangat Pathak and Abhishek Pathak have acquired the right of the movie to be remade in Hindi. The producer confirmed the news over a statement saying that they feel Drishyam's first part was hugely successful and they have hopes for its sequel. The producer duo added that the story needs to be told with full passion. Going by the latest reports, Viacom 18 Motion Pictures who co-produced Drishyam sent the producers a legal notice regarding the rights of Drishyam 2 - The Resumption.

As per a report in ETimes, Viacom 18 Motion Pictures told Mangat that they cannot be dissociated from this project. "They have also told him that he cannot make Drishyam 2 on his own or with someone else. The very fact that Mangat yet went ahead to set up the stage for it has irked them and hence, they've filed a legal complaint against him. The first hearing of the case is going to be held very soon," source revealed.
In his defense, Mangat responded with a notice that his company Panorama Studios has already acquired the legal rights of the film and will continue to make it regardless. However, Viacom 18 Motion Pictures' spokesperson said that they cannot make the film independently or without their involvement.
