'Action Jackson'

Saturday 06th December 2014 07:38 EST

“Action Jackson” is an upcoming action comedy film directed by Prabhudeva. The film features Ajay Devgan in the title role, alongside Sonakshi Sinha, Yami Gautam and Manasvi Mamgai as the female leads and south actor Anand Raj, portraying the main antagonist. The matter of the title being a copyright infringement of the 1988 Hollywood film of the same title has been sorted out by the producers. But Prabhu Dheva is very upset by the way the title's validity was questioned by the international producers. Says Prabhu Dheva, "I don't understand how or why every film title we use in India has to be cleared abroad as well. In that case the law should work both ways. We also should be allowed to question them as to why their films have titled that sound like ours. Why was James Cameron's film called Avatar? Years before Bollywood director Mohan Kumar had made a film called Avatar. Please explain how the same title found its way for Cameron's film."
