A commercial court in Ranchi has ordered the screening of an upcoming Bollywood film ahead of its theatrical release on June 24 in a case involving alleged copyright infringement.
Ranchi-based writer Vishal Singh has filed a copyright infringement suit against Karan Johar’s film ‘Jugjugg Jeeyo,’ a joint production of Viacom 18 Studios and Dharma Production.
Singh claimed that the content of his story titled ‘Punny Rani’ was used in the film without credit and requested a stay of execution. He also demanded Rs 1.5 crore in compensation. Following the court screening, Judge M C Jha will continue the arguments and decide whether or not the film violates the Copyright Act.
