New Delhi, March 19: Nowadays Bollywood Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is irritated over the fact that he might legally lose the copyright of his late father Harivansh Rai Bachchan's famous literary work. 

The 'Term of Copyright Act, 1957 in Posthumous Work' clause only allows the exclusive rights to heirs of original literary work for 60 years after the death of the author. 

Amitabh expressed anger in his blog and wrote, "Written copyright and whatever else in the realm, lives 60 years after the passing with the elements of them that be rightful. Really? So, who designed 60 years? Why 60 why not 61, or why not perpetuity! Inheritors that come as natural heirs be natural right holders of creative copyright...right... but after 60 years it's natural inheritors, after the passing, the heirs become the public at large .. ehh ...?"

Some of Amitabh's father Harivansh Rai Bachchan's famous work includes Madhushala, Agnipath, Ruke Na Tu, Himmat Karne Walon Ki Haar Nahi Hoti.

Harivansh Rai Bachchan died on 18 January 2003.
