Mumbai, Nov 16:  The makers of Shahrukh Khan-starrer ‘Don-2 -The King is Back', which has got embroiled in the copyright issue, maintain that they have not done anything wrong.


‘Don 2 - The King is Back', an action thriller, is a sequel to director Farhan Akhtar's earlier film - ‘Don - The Chase Begins' (2006), which itself was a remake of the Amitabh Bachchan-starrer ‘Don' (1978).

Nariman Films, the producers of the original 1978-hit film ‘Don', have sent a legal notice to Excel Entertainment for copyright infringement, saying that they had only given the right to remake the movie and no rights to make a sequel. 

The producers of the original ‘Don' have reportedly alleged that the sequel has infringed upon their original copyright.

“About the notice from the original producers of ‘Don', be rest assured that we have done nothing wrong and shall stick to the correct legal and moral principals,” producer Ritesh Sidhwani wrote on twitter.

Produced by Excel Entertainment Pvt Ltd, the film is will release on December 23.
