Amit Kumar To Make A Film On Kishore Kumar?

If Kishore Kumar were alive he would be 90 on August  4.The real reason  why  Anurag Basu or any other director has not been  allowed  to make  a bio-pic  on the great actor-singer-composer-filmmaker  Kishore Kumar is  his family.

Sons Amit Kumar and Sumit Kumar and wife Leena Chandravarkar hold  copyrights  for all  resources  and creative output  on   the great  Kishore, and are unwilling  to  let go  of any  material that  other  filmmakers may be desirous  of using in  a film or  any other  creative output. 

Sources  say Anurag Basu fought   a long battle  with Kishore Kumar’s family  for his proposed bio-pic starring Ranbir Kapoor asKishore Kumar.In fact Ranbir is  so  keen to play Kishore Kumar that he has turned down at least  6-7  major bio-pics including those  on sharpshooterAbhinav Bhindra and  astronaut  Rakesh Sharma.  But  Kishore  elder son  Amit Kumar  has exclusive  plans of making a film on his legendary father. Amit once shared his  plans  of  a film on Kishore Kumar with me.”It was Bhaijaan (Mehmood) who suggested it. My brother and I had devised a skit where we both go to the moon and meet our father there. Mehmood suggested we make a film on that theme.That hasn’t happened so far. `
Would  the family  graciously step back and allow  Ranbir-Anurag to do the  needful?
