New Delhi, April 13 (IANS) Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar is amused by the copyright infringement case filed against him for 2008 film "Fashion".
"Now someone has gone to court for the copyright infringement of my film 'Fashion' after 4 years and demanding Rs.2.5 crores...," Bhandarkar tweeted.
Actress-turned-author Seema Seth has filed a complaint against the filmmaker for allegedly stealing the concept of the film from her book "El Dorado".

"In the past, my films 'Page 3', 'Traffic Signal' and 'Jail' claiming to be their concepts were dismissed by legal courts and writers association," he posted.
"I am sure they will be ready with their petition for my upcoming film #HEROINE also which is in making right now for their 15secs of fame," he added.
"Fashion", starring Priyanka Chopra, won both commercial and critical acclaim.
