Super Cassettes Industries Limited (T-series) through its lawyers had filed a commercial suit before Hon’ble Delhi High Court against KriArj Entertainment and Mr Nishant Pitti seeking permanent injunction and declaration in respect of certain rights (right to revenue share) in the cinematograph film “Batti Gul Meter Chalu”.
On the other hand, Easy Trip Planners Pvt. Ltd. through its director Mr Nishant Pitti had also filed a suit against T-series and KriArj Entertainment seeking an injunction and declaration of right of first lien over the revenues of the movie.
After extensively hearing all the Parties; the Court observed that serious disputes have been raised over the “genuineness of the agreements, letter and chats” placed on record by T-series and others and accordingly the same needs to be dealt in depth.
Pursuant to hearing the parties present, the court while issuing notice in both the suits has directed both KriArj and Easy Trip Planners Pvt. Ltd to file their written statements and further has allowed T-series to complete the said film. However, the Hon’ble Court while protecting the right of all the stakeholders directed that any/all monies received by creating rights for exploitation and distribution of the said film shall be deposited in an Escrow Account which shall be subject to the Court’s direction.
The next date of hearing is 5th July 2018.
