Filmmaker Manoj Kumar, who is upset with the makers of "Om Shanti Om" for re-releasing it in Japan without deleting the controversial scenes taking a dig at him, has decided to take action against the producers of the movie.
"I will take a serious action this time. I have no hard feelings for Shah Rukh and is happy that he is busy with his projects, but by insulting a person's image how can it be beneficial for your film," Manoj Kumar, 75, told IANS.
"I don't know the date when I will go to the court. It should be tomorrow (Tuesday) or day after (Wednesday). I would file civil and criminal proceedings against the producers. It should be anytime soon," he added.
The actor of hits like "Neelkamal" and "Hariyali Aur Rasta" is "disturbed".
"I am a strong person. I can bear physical injury, but if someone tries to injure my soul that cannot be forgiven," he said.
The court had asked the makers to remove all the scenes that were found distasteful by the actor from all the prints as well as broadcast material forever.
"First time (late) Yash Chopra got Shah Rukh Khan and Farah Khan to my house and they said they will remove all those scenes from the film and then the things were sorted. But later, when they didn't do so, I told Yash Chopra about it and he said they have stabbed him in the back," he added.
The actor-director says when it comes to his self-respect, he can't compromise.
"I don't have any personal clash with Shah Rukh Khan. He is a nice person, but when it comes to my self-respect, then I can't compromise on it," said Manoj Kumar known for directing patriotic films like "Purab Aur Paschim" and "Upkar".
"My grandchildren recently asked me that friends were asking - is his grandfather the same as shown in the film? When my wife goes out for some pooja, her friends ask her - is your husband same as portrayed in the film? How does one expect me to react in such a situation," said the veteran.

there is no need to fuss over this
this is common these days and he needs to get over things
if he is having such a big problem then what should Rajnikant do for his name is being used many a times
he never says anything
whatever it is Shah Rukh Khan is the best
Manoj sir it is not the first time any one has done it but I have not seen any reaction from your side but you are stuck in OSO. Plus all over the world stars are being copied and all and they don't cry over it. Instead real stars enjoy it.
BTW ShahRukh Khan you are awesome and truly King Khan.
OMG he really needs to get over it. Besides he did use to cover his face with his hands in so many movies. There were so many digs made at so many actors n actresses but they didnt seem to make such a big deal. Its just a movie for gods sake!
