The studio believes the name is too similar to that of the young wizard and are willing to fight through the courts to ensure the film doesn't hit cinemas worldwide.
However, bosses at Mirchi Movies insist their film doesn't infringe on the copyright of the Harry Potter franchise. "Our film bears no resemblance to the Hollywood film Harry Potter and it is a completely different story," Contactmusic quoted a spokesman for the studio, as saying. "Our film has been in the making for quite some time and everyone knew about it," he added.
The case is due in the Bombay High Court on 25 August (08).
