Copyrights are still at a nascent stage in India, however, every now and then there are cases of infringement that come to light. This time round it's Rakesh Roshan's Kites that is caught in the copyright trouble.
The film which is scheduled to release next week has apparently run into troubled waters with the Bihar City Civil Court ordering a stay on the film till Roshan and Happy Hours Entertainment officials appear before the court on May 24. This order follows a case being filed by Laxmi Prasad of Sunbeam Holdings alleging non-receipt of amount due to them for selling the copy right of the action scenes amounting to approximately Rs.10 cr, to which the Rakesh Roshan had apparently agreed to pay approximately half the sum.
However, sources close to the film's production have revealed that the film starring Hrithik Roshan and Barbara Mori will be going ahead with their release on May 21, but have refused to comment on the progress of the case under the premise that the matter is still pending in court and that their legal division is working on resolving the matter.
