The remake of late Prakash Mehra's 1973 blockbuster Zanjeer being produced by his son Amit Mehra has run into hot water. Amit, who had bought the remake rights from his brothers-the elder one Sumeet who stays in the US and the younger sibling Puneet who stays in Mumbai - has defaulted on payments. Consequently, Sumeet and Puneet have terminated the contract that gave Amit there make rights in the first place. The Arbitrator upheld the termination of the contract, which is why Amit panicked and approached the Bombay High Court. As per the HC order , Amit has been given a reprieve to shoot the film. However, he cannot release the remake until further orders from the HC.
