The Supreme Court today refused to stay the release of Anil Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan starrer Hindi film “Fanney Khan” as the plea for this was dismissed.
A bench of Justice Rohinton Fali Nariman and Justice Indu Malhotra dismissed the plea filed by producer Vashu Bhagnani against its release on August 3. The film also stars Rajkummar Rao.
Bhagnani alleged that the film’s distribution rights for India was given to his company Pooja Entertainment & Films Ltd.
Pooja Films said it owns the exclusive rights to distribute, exhibit and exploit the commercial and non-commercial theatrical rights for “Fanney Khan” throughout India and entered into an MoU with co-producer Kriarj Entertainment in December 2017.
