After having suffered defeat before the Single Bench of the Bombay High Court on 2nd September (here), scriptwriters Salim Khan and Javed Akhtar appealed to a Division Bench. As reported, the Division Bench advised the parties to amicably settle their dispute. Agreeing to this, the scriptwriters withdrew their suit and arrived at a financial settlement with the producers. The settlement was arrived at in the judges’ chamber so that the settlement amount was not divulged to the public at large. This has paved way for the release of the remake Zanjeer on 6th September.
