Lama Thrown out of Court for False Claims Against Gowariker
Justice Patel passed a detailed order in which he slammed Lama for approaching various forums and harassing Gowariker as well as UTV and Hrithik Roshan with his false claims and baseless allegations. Justice Patel held that Lama had been unable to make out a case and observed how it had become a matter of course in the recent past to approach the Courts close to a film’s release to harass film makers and producers and blackmail them.
The Order goes on to record Ashutosh’s painstaking research, contacting of archaeologists and inviting and hosting 6 of the renowned experts on the archaeological site of Mohenjo Daro to Mumbai for a week for in depth discussions and building his story and script based on their theories and opinions.
The Judge strongly criticised Lama for the many press and media articles, youtube interviews and social media related material, released by him filled with allegations against Gowariker, and stated that this was slandering of Ashutosh Gowariker, who is a director of good repute.
