Jugjugg Jeeyo Targeted With Humbug Litigation



Jugjugg Jeeyo 

Just days before  its release  Karan Johar’s  much-anticipated Jugjugg Jeeyo is in legal trouble .A court in Ranchi has asked Karan Johar’s Dharma  Productions to  arrange  a  special  screening of the film in response  to  a  lawsuit filed by  someone named Vishal A. Singh who claims  the film is  based on his script.

Singh’s tweet read, “Had registered a story.. #BunnyRani with @swaindiaorg in January 2020. I had officially mailed @DharmaMovies in February 2020 for an opportunity to co-produce with them. I even got a reply from them. And they have taken my story.. and made #JugJuggJeeyo. Not fair @karanjohar.”

Now the  question that  Dharma  Productions’ sources  would  like to ask  Mr Singh is, why  did  he wait until so late before taking  the  Jugjugg Jeeyo producers  to court?  Does he realize what it means for a  movie to be targeted so close to the release?  Or is that the  point: optimum  harassment?

This  seems  like a nuisance litigation against a film on release whereby  an effort is made to block a film’s release just weeks or days  before the scheduled Friday.

This must stop. It is  nothing but a form  of  extortion.  These last-minute legal recourse  is  meant to  paint film producers into  a corner.

Pay  up some lakhs or face  crores  of  losses   if  the  film gets  blocked.
