Amey Khopkar had announced the sequel to the much-loved Marathi film De Dhakka (2008) last year. Directed by Sudesh Manjrekar, De Dhakka was produced by Zee Studios.
When Khopkar announced that the sequel would be produced under his banner, Amey Khopkar Entertainment, Zee Studios filed a case in high court claiming that it owns the right to the sequel as the first part was produced by them. After hearing both sides, the court dismissed the plea by Zee Studios.
Talking about the verdict Khopkar said, "I welcome the court's decision and congratulate the entire team of De Dhakka 2 (2020) for their hardwork.
De Dhakka 2 will star Makarand Anaspure, Siddharth Jadhav, Medha Manjrekar and Shivaji Satam.
