Despite a legal notice from Hollywood studio Warner Bros. claiming copyright infringement, director Prabhu Dheva and his producer Gordhan Tanwani are in no mood to budge from the title ‘Action Jackson‘.

Prabhudheva in no mood to yield on 'Action Jackson'

Warner Bros’ 1988 Hollywood film featuring Carl Weathers and Sharon Stone released with the same name and the production house has given the makers of the Bollywood film a notice to change the title as ‘Action Jackson’ is registered by them for the sub-continent as well.

A letter has been sent to Baba Arts Limited Production and Eros International, who are jointly producing the film.

On the other hand, Prabhu Dheva says there is a very special reason why his film is called ‘Action Jackson’.

“We named the film ‘Action Jackson’ because our hero Ajay Devgun is known as ‘AJ’ and we thought it would be a good idea to use the initials and extend it into the title ‘Action Jackson’ as Ajay is doing both action and dancing in the film,” said the director.  Read more on msn.
