A Ranchi court will see this film before the decision on the release of Bollywood’s famous producer-director Karan Johar’s film ‘Jug-Jug Jio’. Ranchi resident Vishal Singh has filed a case in the court accusing him of stealing the story and script of the film.
While hearing the matter on Saturday, the Commercial Court at Ranchi Civil Court directed the film’s producer Dharma Productions to make arrangements to show the film in the court on June 21. The producer has announced the release of this film on June 24. During the hearing in the court, senior advocate Chittaranjan Sinha presented the arguments on behalf of Karan Johar and advocate Kumar Vaibhav on behalf of the appellant.
During the last hearing, the court had issued notices to Dharma Productions owners Karan Johar and Suber Mishra as well as creative head Somen Mishra, co-producer Viacom18 and Screen Writers’ Association.
Petitioner Vishal Singh is a resident of Ranchi and is a Chartered Accountant by profession. Vishal has told in his complaint that his story ‘Bunny Rani’ has been stolen from the film ‘Jug Jug Jio’. When the trailer of the film was released on 22 May, he came to know that it was his story. Vishal Singh had sent this story to him earlier. The producer had returned this story to him and now a film was made on it secretly.
Let us tell you that Karan Johar has also been accused of theft on the song of the same film. Pakistani singer Abrar-ul-Haq had alleged plagiarism on the song of the film, saying that the song ‘Nach Punjaban’ from the film belonged to him and he had used it without his permission.
