Controversial director Ram Gopal Varma will be going ahead with the title 'Sridevi' for his next film despite getting a legal notice from the yesteryear's heroine Sridevi. The once upon a time beauty feared that RGV is misusing her name and would also tarnish her image in the public. It was a shock to RGV to get a legal notice from his teenage idol but RGV is in no mood to go back now.
Replying to the legal notice, RGV said, “The title has been given to us by the Andhra Pradesh Film Chamber which is the authorised body for such deeds..moreover films with this same title “Sridevi” have been made and released atleast 3 times in the last two decades. I am going ahead with the title “Sridevi” because I am well within my legal and moral rights to use it..legal because a name cannot be copyrighted and also like I said the film has nothing to do with the real Sridevi to the extent that the protagonist is not even an actress.”
RGV also feels that Sridevi is influenced by others and also added that he gave enough explanation to Mr Boney Kapoor [Sridevi's husband] both orally and in a message.
