The title tussle between filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma (RGV) and Nitin Manmohan has finally been resolved as the former has decided to name the sequel of his 2003 film "Bhoot" as "Bhoot Returns".

Varma had directed "Bhoot", while Nitin Manmohan had produced it. After its success, "Bhoot 2" as a title was registered by producer Nitin Manmohan's company because at that time Nitin Manmohan and RGV were together.

However, both of them later parted ways. Last year, Nitin Manmohan had announced that he is making "Bhoot 2" with Vikram Bhatt as the director. But when Vikram came to know it was not done with RGV's consent, he backed out.

The new producers of RGV's sequel, Alumbra Entertainment and Eros International, had repeatedly requested Manmohan to give up the title claiming, the original creator was RGV.

"The producers repeated requested in Manmohan to give the copyright of the title. But he delayed the process," said a source

As a result, RGV changed the title of his film from "Bhoot 2" to "Bhoot Returns". The film marks the comeback of actress Manisha Koirala.
