After watching Zanjeer, Amitabh Bachchan obtains stay order on remakes of his films

Mumbai. Superstar Amitabh Bachchan has obtained a stay order from High Court on further remakes of his films. He applied for a stay order after watching the latest remake of one of his hit films, Zanjeer.

Zanjeer starring Ram Charan, Sanjay Dutt, and Priyanka Chopra released today in cinema halls and has been running to empty houses when reports last came in.

Speaking to Faking news, Mr. Bachchan said, “See, I am not against remakes but why do they feel the need to make a spoof of my movies? I acted in RGV Ki Aag in good faith but it ended up becoming a spoof of Sholay. Don was ok but they changed the ending to milk the brand name by making sequels. In Agneepath, they made that chocolaty boy Vijay Dinanath Chauhan, but the tipping point was Zanjeer. What in God’s name have they done with the film?”

Mr. Bachchan was clearly outraged as he went on a long rant on Twitter with tweets like “This Zanjeer is NOT the real Zanjeer.. It is FAKE FAKE FAKE.” and another tweet saying “People say I have acted in original version of this Zanjeer, I did not act in any film similar to this. News is FAKE FAKE FAKE.

It has come as a surprise to many Bollywood people as quite a few remakes of Mr. Bachchan’s films are already in the pipeline.

There are some suggestions to cast Salman Khan in those movies as nobody will focus on the story with Bhai in it and they won’t realize that it’s a remake of a Big B film, but senior Bachchan is not impressed with the idea. He doesn’t want anymore remakes.

While movie critics are blaming Zanjeer, industry insiders told us that Mr. Bachchan is just worried that they may make remakes of Lal Badshah and Suryavansham as well and he doesn’t want that at any cost.
