Warner Bros' title war against Ajay Devgn-Prabhudeva's Action Jackson

Trouble's brewing over the title of Prabhudheva's film Action Jackson, but co-producer Gordan Tanwani refuses to budge and insists he will not rename the film at any cost. 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 48-hour notice to change the title as Action Jackson is registered by them as well. 
"When you register a title with any or all of these associations, they get their clearance from the government of India. My film is 70 percent complete, why have they sent a notice now? Why do they have an objection now and not earlier," Tanwani of Baba Arts Limited Production said to IANS.
"It is just because they want to pressurise the individual producer...they know I am an individual producer and they are big people. They want to create pressure on the small producer," he said.
"What was the need to send a notice? They should have called the associations because they are also the member of the same association. I am surprised," he said. The film stars Ajay Devgn, Sonakshi Sinha, Yami Gautam and Kunal Roy Kapur.
