Gulf News:  A UAE-based horror filmmaker Faisal Hashmi, who had flagged up a seemingly problematic clause in the terms and conditions listed in Shah Rukh Khan’s latest contest inviting entries from aspiring filmmakers to shoot their own horror stories, enjoyed a small victory on Sunday when Khan’s production house modified the clause which he thought was “predatory and sketchy”.  Translation? The moment you send along your video and enter Khan’s horror film contest, you have no rights to your project and that RCE can use it the way they deem fit.
 “On the surface, the contest seemed like a great, cool idea because Shah Rukh Khan is encouraging horror films to be made at home .
and how his jury from Red Chillies is going to choose a winner who will win the chance to have a video call with Shah Rukh Khan.
For a lot of people, a video call with a big star like Shah Rukh Khan is a big deal as a prize, but imagine they can do anything with your work without any real or monetary compensation to the creator,” said Hashmi.
